Barcelona legend implicated as investigation continues into alleged attack on PSG player

Posted by

Barcelona legend Eric Abidal has been implicated in the investigation into the attack on PSG Women player Kheira Hamraoui.

As is reported by ESPN, Hamraoui’s PSG and France teammate Aminata Diallo was initially brought into custody by police on suspicion of ordering an attack in an attempt to cause physical harm.

The alleged intention was to damage Hamraoui’s legs in order to see Diallo rise above her in the PSG pecking order. That theory is, at the time of writing, unproven by the authorities.

A second report by ESPN throws a new name into the mix, one which is sure to raise eyebrows – Eric Abidal.

The report claims that police have discovered Hamraoui called Abidal on the morning the attack took place, with there now being further scrutiny on the ties between the legendary left-back and the victim.

Acknowledging the risk that any unfounded speculation poses to Abidal’s reputation, we will refrain to consider how or why he was allegedly involved. Let’s wait for further details to be provided by the police.
