England winger Jack Grealish was at Manchester City team-mate Benjamin Mendy’s party where two women were allegedly raped, a court heard.
Grealish, 27, and Mendy, 28, had been at the China White nightclub in Manchester city center before returning to Mendy’s Cheshire mansion, The Spinney, in Prestbury, when the women were attacked, Chester Crown Court heard .
Una, 23, said she was raped by Mendy’s co-defendant Louis Saha Matturie, 41, in a car when they went to get more drink.
She told a second girl, 17, who claims Mendy raped her, that she also had sex with Grealish, the court was told.
Both Mendy and Matturie deny multiple sexual offenses against a string of young women.
On Friday, the jurors were played a police interview from the young woman, accusing Mendy and Matturie of rape.
Aged seventeen at the time, she says Mendy raped her twice at his home during the gathering, where Mendy’s friends and Grealish’s friends from Birmingham were also present.
She told police that Matturie asked her out at the nightclub in the early hours of August 23.
She arrived around 3.30am and was outside the club shortly before Mendy and Matturie left.
She said: “They were with Jack Grealish. There were a few girls around him, but they were taking pictures and videos with his friends.
“The club didn’t like that. They wanted the pictures deleted.
“Talked a little with. It took them a while to come out.”
The teenager took a taxi with three other girls and one of Matturie’s girlfriends and had a drink on the way to Mendy’s house, where the girls’ mobile phones were taken before going inside, the court was told.
She said: “There were already two girls on the couch. They were sitting next to Jack. He was already on the couch.”
Matturie then led the 23-year-old “hand in hand” to get more alcohol because, the police witness said, “Jack asked for vodka.”
Matturie then allegedly raped the 23-year-old in the car in which they went to shop at a local gas station before returning home.
The 17-year-old told police: “I asked her what happened. I took her to the toilet. She’s absolutely mad, hysterical. She just told me that she fell asleep in the car and woke up to the feeling of him pushing into her.
The teenager told police she felt “uncomfortable” and didn’t know what to do, but had no phone to call for help.
Later, in a lounge area, she said Mendy began “checking her out” before leading her to a desk with a secure lock.
Inside the office, Mendy allegedly raped the teenager twice.
She told police: “We didn’t talk about sex beforehand and then we didn’t talk about it.
“There was nothing to suggest we were going to have sex. During sex, he would tell me, “This is not the body of a 17-year-old. This is not a 17 year old’s ass. I want you every day”.
Later, the 17-year-old went to find the 23-year-old and found her in a salon.
She told police: “She told me she had sex with Jack.
“I don’t know if it was consensual or non-consensual. I don’t know what that was. But she was talking about it.
“I know that was after I was with Ben because after she went to bed with Ben too.
“She had been taken to a room with Ben. This was a bedroom.”
The teenager said she was raped in a cinema hall by Matturie after being raped by Mendy.
She said she saw Grealish “passed out” in the house.
She said she was raped again by Matturie in a flat in Manchester on the same day.
Prosecutors say Mendy is a “predator” who “turned pursuing women for sex into a game”.
Matturie, the friend and “fixer”, was allegedly tasked with finding 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, of Eccles, Salford, denies six counts of rape and three counts of sexual assault relating to seven young women.
Both men say that if any sex with women or girls took place, it was consensual.
The process continues.
