The Manchester City players had been at China White nightclub in the city before going back to Mendy’s mansion near Prestbury, Cheshire, jurors were told.

One, 23, said she was raped by Matturie, 41, in a car when they went to get more alcohol.

She told a second girl, then 17, who claims Mendy raped her, she had also had sex with Grealish, the court heard.

Both Mendy, 28, and Matturie deny multiple rape and sexual offenses against a string of young women.

Today, jurors were played a police interview from the woman accusing Mendy and Matturie of rape, in which winger Grealish, 27, was named.

She said Mendy raped her twice at his home during the gathering, where his friends and Grealish’s pals, from Birmingham, were also present.

The alleged victim said: “They were with Jack Grealish. There were a few girls around him but they were taking pictures and video with his friends.

“The club did not like that. They wanted the pics to be deleted.

“There was a bit of a talking to. It took a while for them to come out.”

The teenager got a taxi with three other girls and one of Matturie’s friends to Mendy’s house, where the girls had their mobile phones taken away before going inside, the court was told.

She said: “There were already two girls on the couch. They were sat next to Jack.”

Matturie then led the 23-year-old woman away “hand in hand” to get more alcohol because Grealish had been “demanding vodka,” the witness told police.

Matturie then allegedly raped the woman in the car they used to go to a shop at a local petrol station before returning to the house.

The 17-year-old told cops: “I asked her what happened. I took her to the toilet. She’s absolutely distraught, in hysterics.

“She just told me she had fallen asleep in the car and woke up with the feeling of him pushing inside her.”

The teenager said she felt “uncomfortable” and did not know what to do but had no phone to call for help.

PREDATOR MENDY

Later, in a lounge area, she said Mendy began “checking her out” before leading her to an office with a secure lock.

Inside the office, Mendy allegedly raped the teenager twice.

She told police: “We did not talk about sex beforehand and afterwards we did not talk about it.

“There was nothing of the sort to suggest we were going to engage in sex.

“During sex he was telling me, ‘This is not the body of a 17-year-old. This is not the ass of a 17-year-old. I want you every day’.”

Afterwards, the teenager went looking for the other woman and found her in a lounge where she told her she had “just had sex” with Grealish.

“I don’t know whether that was consensual or non-consensual. I don’t know what that was. But she was talking about it,” the younger woman added.

“I know that this was after I had been with Ben, because after she had gone to bed with Ben as well.

“She had been taken up to a room with Ben. This was a bedroom.”

There was nothing of the sort to suggest we were going to engage in sex.

The teenager said she was raped in a cinema room by Matturie after being raped by Mendy, and later saw Grealish “passed out”.

She said she was raped again by Matturie at a Manchester flat on the same day.

Prosecutors claim Mendy is a “predator” who “turned the pursuit of women for sex into a game.”

Matturie, his friend and “fixer”, allegedly had the job of finding young women for sex.

Mendy denies seven counts of rape, one count of attempted rape and one count of sexual assault against six young women.

Matturie, known as Saha, of Eccles, Salford, denies six counts of rape and three counts of sexual assault relating to seven young women.

Both men say if any sex did take place with women or girls it was consensual.
