Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Aminata Diallo has been released by police without charges after being arrested on Wednesday for allegedly orchestrating the serious assault suffered by her teammate Kheira Hamraoui last Thursday, November 4.
The two women were stopped by two hooded men, who attacked Hamraoui while the players were on their way to the No.14’s home after a team dinner.
“The club continues to support its players to allow them to overcome this ordeal as soon as possible,” reads PSG’s statement.
“Paris Saint-Germain reiterates its confidence in the justice system to shed full light on the events.
“The club would like to thank everyone for showing restraint and respecting the presumption of innocence as well as the privacy of the team.”
Following the team dinner that took place on that day of November 4, Diallo offered to drive her teammate and friend Hamraoui back home.
On their way to Hamraoui‘s flat, the car was stopped by two men wearing balaclavas, who dragged the women out of the car but only attacked Hamraoui with iron bars.
The former Barcelona midfielder was taken to the hospital with hand and leg injuries, while Diallo was arrested on Wednesday after PSG‘s duel with Real Madrid in the Champions League.
The unusual route and the prisoner
According to L’Equipe, both women have strong temperaments and were even involved in cases of indiscipline in the past.
Meanwhile, Le Parisien revealed that Diallo made contact with a prisoner who was also been taken into custody as part of the investigation.
The French publication stressed this prisoner has been accused of 50 criminal acts and was sentenced in March for acts of violence.
However, this person claims to have known Diallo for a long time and to have simply expressed concern for the player.
There is also a hypothesis pointing to the unusual route that Diallo chose to take on their way to her teammate’s home and the speed at which she was supposedly going when they were assaulted by the two men.
