Before the trial, he pleaded guilty to seven counts of indecent assault involving three boys, two of whom were part of the trial.
Bennell, who had part of his tongue removed due to cancer, appeared in court via videolink for health reasons and declined to give evidence in his own defense.
Manchester City said they are also continuing to "exhaustively examine" a number of reports of "historic anomalous behaviours".
In his closing speech, Nicholas Johnson QC, prosecuting, said: "We suggest Mr Bennell is a child molester on an industrial scale and that's why he went to these lengths to get so many lads round to his house".

She said: "It's been a huge, huge decision for them and there are those as well that have waived anonymity and I have to say all credit to them because I think through that other people have felt empowered to come forward and report what happened".
Police are also now investigating further allegations after 86 more people came forward since Bennell's abuse came to light.
He was also said to have been treated like "God" at City's former Maine Road stadium and has already been jailed three times for previous sexual offences against other victims.

"Today justice was done and you no longer have any power over us".
The young boys in question were abused at Bennell's home, which they were lured into staying at by Bennell's plethora of video games and exotic pets.
Manchester City offered "heartfelt sympathy to all victims for the unimaginably traumatic experiences they have endured".
It added it was was not aware of any sexual abuse by Bennell or had received any complaint before or during his employment with the club.
