PSG women’s player, Aminata Diallo (pictured left) has been taken into custody after she was alleged to have instigated an attack by thugs on teammate Kheira Hamraoui (pictured right)
Both players represent PSG and the France women’s national team together and Kheira was attacked while on the street last week Thursday evening, November 4.
According to French newspaper L’Equipe, Diallo is accused of playing a part in hiring two masked men to drag Hamraoui out of her car, punch and hit her legs in a bid to injure her and eliminate her so she won’t have competition for places in the squad.
The ambush happened as she returned home with some of her teammates after dinner. The masked assailants are said to have pulled her from her vehicle and struck her with an iron bar.
Former Barcelona player Hamraoui was taken to hospital and required stitches to help heal the cuts on her hands and legs.
PSG put out a statement on Wednesday, November 10.
‘Paris Saint-Germain can confirm that Aminata Diallo was taken into custody this morning by the Versailles Regional Police Service as part of the proceedings opened following an attack on the Club’s players last Thursday evening,’ the statement read.
‘Paris Saint-Germain condemns in the strongest possible terms the violence committed.
‘Since Thursday evening the Club has taken all necessary measures to guarantee the health, well-being and safety of its entire women’s team.
‘Paris Saint-Germain is working with the Versailles Police to clarify the facts. The Club is paying close attention to the progress of the proceedings and will study what action to take.’
Diallo played in PSG’s 4-0 Champions League win over Real Madrid on Tuesday evening but Hamraoui was absent from the squad as she continues her recovery from the violent attack.
