Prosecutor Timothy Kray told a jury at Chester Crown Court that defender Mendy lured young women into “toxic and dangerous” situations at parties.

Mendy and Matturie assumed the women were “good for sex” and “never heard the word ‘no'”, the lawyer argued. Their trial has been told the alleged assaults took place at a flat Mendy rented in Manchester city center and at “after parties” at his home in leafy Cheshire.

Matturie is said by the prosecution to have been the one “fix” who identified and invited women to the parties from VIP lounges at nightclubs in the city.

As evidence, Mendy has denied having lied to “save his own skin”despite admitting to having sex with women “within seconds and minutes” to meet them.

He admitted that he had sex with many women, but insisted that he always stopped if they told him to “none”. Character witnesses for Mendy in the trial have included his boss, Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola. But Cray said despite that, “there’s this dangerous streak that makes him a predatory serial rapist”.

“We all know that celebrity is absolutely no guarantee of genuine good character, is it?” he told the jury.

“In fact, celebrities in general are a really good cover for people to hide the dark side of your life and get away with it.” However, Mendy’s lawyer Eleanor Laws said each of the accusations relied on “one word against the other” and claimed links between the complaints.

“People make false claims,” she said, highlighting the case of a 19-year-old woman who accused both Mendy and Matturie of raping her. Cell phone footage emerged of the woman who had “enthusiastic” sex with Matturie on an occasion where she alleged that she had been raped.

Jurors were instructed by the judge to find both men guilty of those charges. The trial was adjourned until Friday
