Benjamin Mendy has made his return to football after two years out of the game.
The former Manchester City and France defender came off the bench for Lorient as a second half substitute against ex-side Monaco in Ligue 1.
Mendy, 29, had been accused of carrying out sex attacks on two women at his £4million mansion.
He was cleared after three hours of deliberation by a jury at Chester Crown Court in July – and broke down in the dock afterwards before saying he was ‘delighted’ with the not guilty verdicts.
He came on as a substitute for Lorient in the 71st minute of their game on Sunday.
