The solemn decor of the Chester Crown Court courtroom, with its dark and weathered woodwork, and the announcement of a trial scheduled to start on January 24 did not seem to dampen its apparent relaxation. Arrived at the court Friday morning, shortly after 9 a.m., in a prison van, Benjamin Mendy left in the same way at 4:45 p.m., to find his cell in the private prison of Altcourse, north of Liverpool. The international defender of Manchester City (27) has been held there in pre-trial detention since August 27, for having violated the conditions of his parole, which consisted in particular of no longer organizing a party at his home (see The team Friday).
