Paris St-Germain’s Aminata Diallo Arrested By French Police

Aminata Diallo of Paris St-Germain has been arrested by French police due to an investigation into an attack on team-mate Kheira Hamraoui.

The 26 year old was driving Hamraoui and another unnamed team-mate home after a team meal in Paris on 4 November 2021 when they were ambushed by two masked men.

It is alleged that Hamraoui, who is a fellow France international was dragged from the car and beaten by the masked men. She was later treated in hospital and had stitches on her arms and legs.

In a statement, PSG strongly condemned the violence and said that they were working with police to establish what really happened to their player.

The club also added they had “taken all the necessary measures to guarantee the health, well-being and safety of players” since the attack took place.

Diallo, who is a midfielder, has been capped seven times for France. She joined PSG in 2016 and has made more than 60 appearances for the club but spent time on loan at Atletico Madrid last season.
