A teenager who was allegedly raped by Benjamin Mendy asked for the number of his Man City team-mate twice the day after the alleged assaults, a court has heard.

Mendy, 28, and his boyfriend Louis Saha Matturie, 41, are accused of raping a then 17-year-old woman on August 23 last year.

The alleged attacks happened at an after-party Mr Grealish was at at Mendy’s Cheshire mansion.

Chester Crown Court heard on Monday how the young girl was about to give Mr Grealish’s phone number to a woman she had previously seen with him.

Matturie’s defense attorney, Lisa Wilding KC, told the jury about text messages the teen sent to friends after the event.

One message read: “Jack Grealish is so sexy in person he winked at you all night saying how beautiful you are but you didn’t sleep with him because you’re not easy but you got with them all next week invited .’

Speaking directly to the alleged victim, Ms Wilding said: “This news reflects how you really were that morning, happy you had a great night, is that the truth?”

“No, that’s not true,” the girl replied.

Ms Wilding argued the teenager agreed to sleep with Mendy and Matturie, then worried about what her boyfriend would think.

She then became “carried away” and eventually claimed she had been raped, the court heard.

That process resumed Monday after a three-week hiatus.

The jury has already heard how Mendy is accused of raping the 17-year-old in his office and then in his trophy room before Matturie raped her in Mendy’s cinema room and later at his own flat near Manchester city centre.

The court was also told about “excitable” voice messages sent to the girl’s friends on a Snapchat group the day after the party.

In it, the teenager told friends: “Honest to God. High point of my life… The cathedral has gone to my head. Don’t you love champagne too, when it costs fifteen hundred pounds?’

Another 23-year-old woman has also accused Matturie of raping her during the same event.

She claims she left the party with Matturie to buy more vodka at a nearby gas station store.

But on the way back, Matturie allegedly stopped his car, reclined her seat, and raped her.

The woman told police: “I felt so gross, I felt so dirty, so picky. Disgusting.’

Prosecutors have claimed Mendy was a “predator” who “turned the pursuit of sex into a game” while Matturie was a “fix” whose job it was to find young women for sex.

Mendy denies seven counts of rape, one count of attempted rape and one count of sexual assault against six young women.

Matturie, from Eccles, Salford, denies six counts of rape and three counts of sexual assault involving seven young women.

Both men say that when sex was with women or girls, it was consensual.

The jury has now heard from 10 of the 13 complainants.

The process goes on.
