Monaco Striker Ben Yedder Faces Serious Charges: Accused of Assaulting Two Women, Aged 19 and 20


Monaco and France striker, Wissam Ben Yedder has been charged with ‘rape, attempted rape and sexual assault’ over alleged acts committed on the Cote d’Azur last month, prosecutors in Nice said on Friday, August 11.

Ben Yedder, 32, has been placed under judicial supervision and had to pay bail of 900,000 euros (£776,000), the Nice prosecutor’s office told AFP.

In July, public prosecutor Xavier Bonhomme confirmed ‘the existence of two allegations of rape, from two victims, targeting two people’.

According to radio station France Info, two women, aged 19 and 20, accused Ben Yedder and his younger brother, of having ‘forced them into sexual acts’ after a night out.

Ben Yedder’s brother has also been indicted on the same charges.

In April, Ben Yedder was convicted of tax fraud by a Spanish court during his time at Sevilla and was handed a six-month suspended prison sentence and a fine of 133,798 euros (£115,415).

Wissam Ben Yedder has won 19 caps for France but last played international football in June 2022.

Ben Yedder, who previously played for Toulouse and Sevilla, has scored 98 goals for Monaco since joining the principality club in 2019.

He was present at training with Monaco on Friday ahead of their Ligue 1 season opener against Clermont on Sunday.
