“On 4 July, a 29-year-old man was arrested at an address in Barnet on suspicion of rape and taken into custody.

“While in custody, he was further arrested on suspicion of two incidents of rape that were alleged to have been committed in April and June of 2021 against a different woman in her 20s.”

Additionally, they expressed that no “further action will be taken” in relation to the offense in June 2021.

However, investigation into the other offenses will still continue to progress.

However, the unnamed player continued to strut his stuff for the entirety of the 2022/23 season after he was apprehended on the 2nd of July, 2022.

Based on what we gathered, MPs and campaigners have also wondered if the internationally known footballer should have been given a leeway to continue playing games for his club.

It was stated that following several bail extensions, the footballer was expected to show up at a station early this month before it was moved to August.

In the past years, there has been several cases of rape with football stars linked heavily to many.

Manchester City star Benjamin Mendy is still in the course of an ongoing trial which hasn’t gotten a definitive end.

This worrying trend definitely needs to be nipped in the bud and culprits punished. Either the footballers should be punished if found guilty or if the players are also falsely accused in some cases, their accusers should be severely punished.
