Eric Abidal “is questioned by French police about attack on PSG female star”

Former France and Barcelona defender Eric Abidal is reportedly to be questioned by police investigating the attack on Paris Saint-Germain female star Kheira Hamraoui.

Hamraoui, 31, was attacked on November 4th. She was being driven home by PSG teammate Aminata Diallo (26) when two masked men stopped the car and hit her with iron bars so hard that it had to be sewn.

According to Le Monde on Monday, the attackers shouted “You like to sleep with married men” during the incident.

Diallo was arrested last week on suspicion of hiring the men to attack Hamraoui, a midfielder who was her direct rival for a spot on the PSG team. But reports have now surfaced in France of Abidal’s alleged involvement.

Le Monde claims the attack had something to do with alleged relationships between Hamraoui and Abidal.

Le Monde adds that Hamraoui called Abidal the day after the attack and investigators have since discovered that her phone is registered in Abidal’s name.

The 42-year-old Abidal has been married to his wife Hayet Abidal since 2003 and has five children together. Le Monde says it is possible that she could be summoned as a witness. Abidal’s lawyer was contacted and said, ‘I’ve spoken to him, but for now I’m not going to tell you anything.’

Abidal played 67 games for France and finished second for his country at the 2006 World Cup. In Barcelona he won four La Liga titles and two Champions League titles between 2007 and 2013.

He also played for the French clubs Monaco, Lille and Lyon as well as for the Greek team Olympiacos throughout his active career.

In 2011 Abidal was diagnosed with a liver tumor and a year later a live transplant was performed.

The police initially worked on the theory that Diallo had planned the attack on her teammate to get her off the PSG team.

According to L’Equipe, the players were at a team lunch and afterwards Diallo offered to drive Hamraoui from the restaurant to their home in the Yvelines region, near their own property.

As the two approached Hamraoui’s house, two masked men stopped the car and hit them with iron bars.

The attack is said to have lasted a few minutes, after which the men fled.

Diallo was “arrested” by the two men during the attack but was not injured, a club source told AFP.

It is not exactly clear how the two men stopped the car or how Diallo was “arrested”.

Hamraoui was taken to the hospital where she was sewn on her legs and hands.

She was unable to take part in PSG’s Champions League game against Real Madrid on Tuesday. The club said at the time that they were suspending the game for “personal reasons”. Diallo started the game instead.

PSG confirmed last week that Diallo was in custody. A statement from the club said: “Paris Saint-Germain takes note of the police custody of Aminata Diallo this morning by the Versailles DRPJ as part of the proceedings opened following an attack on club players on Thursday yesterday evening.

“Paris Saint-Germain strongly condemns the violence committed. Since Thursday evening November 4th, the club has taken all necessary measures to ensure the health, well-being and safety of its players.

“Paris Saint-Germain is working with the Versailles SRPJ to clear the facts. The club is closely monitoring the progress of the process and will review the follow-up. ‘
