That was withdrawn:

"No pleas were entered as the charges were put to the Premier League footballer, who had also been facing one count of breaking his bail conditions in August.

That charge was withdrawn in court."

Articles been updated then............ he breached bail by having more than 4 people in his house according to the earlier release.

There’s a lot of slightly muddled legal information/thinking on this thread!


That’s not entirely true. When the court makes a decision on bail (which doesn’t seem to have happened yet) they can have a regard to the strength of the evidence, if they’re considering refusing bail under the likelihood of the defendant failing to surrender, committing further offences etc


Yes but the fact that he has been charged and remanded rather than released under investigation or released on police bail at least implies (but doesn’t guarantee, given the other factors in this case such as his celebrity status) that they have quite good evidence on him - enough for the CPS to agree to a charge.
Nobody is chargesd with a criminal offence unless the Police or CPS believe they have enough evidence to charge

Another footballer for Greater Manchester Police to deal with.

Still waiting for news on the completely unidentifiable 31 year old Everton international who isn’t Fabian Delph.

Love that bit (true or not) that he thought he was being put in the VIP wing. Hopefully the VP (vulnerable persons) section was a nice surprise. 🤣

First Gylfi now Mendy. Doesn't Ronaldo also have some accusations looming over him? Not a great summer for the reputation of Premier League footballers.

Never getting charged in a million, billion years despite being on the record as admitting she said “no” and “stop” and then paying her money to drop the case.

I am aware of a separate accusation against him that never made a dent publicly, but is pretty bloody serious and plenty of well-placed sources have claimed it’s absolutely accurate. It’s amazing what is allowed to slide once you reach a certain level of commercial value and appeal.

As for a certain Everton player who may or may not have been named a few posts ago… ooft.
