After being away from the sport for two years, Benjamin Mendy has started playing football again, and this time, with Lorient.
In Ligue 1, the former defender for Manchester City and France came off the bench for Lorient against old team Monaco.
The left-back was facing a retrial on two different counts after being cleared of six rapes and one sexual assault involving four women after a previous trial that lasted four months.
Five days after the conclusion of his summer trial, Mendy signed on with Lorient.
In the 71st minute of Lorient’s Sunday match against AS Monaco, which ended 2-2, he entered the game as a substitute.
