Former Paris Saint-Germain Women’s star Aminata Diallo Googled how to break a kneecap and a ‘dangerous drug cocktail’ in the lead up to an attack on one of her team-mates last year, it has been alleged.
Diallo, 27, was charged with aggravated assault on Friday evening after being taken into police custody in connection with an attack on team-mate Kheira Hamraoui, 32, by two masked strangers last year.
Following a team meal on November 4, last year, Hamraoui hitched caught a ride on her way home in a car driven by Diallo, before she was dragged from the car by thugs and beaten on the legs with an iron bar.
Her legs were badly beaten that she was out a crucial European Champions League game holding a few days later. Diallo, her main rival in that position, became an automatic choice for the game. Police investigation followed.
Now, a new report from the Crime Prevention Brigade of the judicial police of Versailles, extracts of which were published by French newspaper Le Parisien, claims a ‘real hatred’ developed within Diallo towards her team-mate, with one message allegedly found on her phone claiming she wished ‘them all pain’, referencing team-mates at PSG.
‘She considered her an obstacle to her own sports career,’ according to Le Parisien, quoting the report.
The report is said to suggest it has been a “slow psychological drift that has become, so to speak, pathological.”
Those are the terms with which officers of the crime prevention brigade of the Versailles judicial police describe the fierce hatred that PSG player Aminata Diallo harbored for her teammate Kheira Hamraoui. A hatred against a backdrop of sporting rivalry and thwarted ambition which proved to be the motive behind Diallo sponsoring the attack with an iron bar against Hamraoui on November 4, 2021, in Chatou (Yvelines), after returning from a club-sponsored “cohesion” dinner in a restaurant in the Bois de Boulogne .
“It has thus been irrefutably proven that Aminata Diallo nursed a real hatred against her teammate whom she considered an obstacle to her own career,” the police report stated
Police are said to have bugged the phone of Diallo, a person of interest in the investigation, and the judicial report is said to allege that she searched for a ‘dangerous drug cocktail’ as well as ‘how to break a kneecap’ in the lead-up to the attack.
Diallo, who has been temporarily placed in prison while she awaits further talks with the investigating judge, has consistently maintained her innocence from the start of the investigation.
She was previously released without charges following her first detention last year.
But the latest bombshell allegations, which also included WhatsApp messages from her phone, arrived as a shocking development to the story in Paris.
A bombshell new report has revealed Diallo’s phone activity prior to the attack on Hamraoui
‘If I was bad, jealous, and calculating like her… I [would tell a relative] to destroy her,’ one WhatsApp message read.
Another, sent to a contact nicknamed ‘Jaja’, read: ‘I will become shameless now! I need someone but to f**k my job for free I don’t accept… I wish them [my team-mates] all harm, I only need my relatives.’
Speaking last year, Hamraoui opened up on the vicious attack to French daily newspaper L’Equipe, explaining her fears as she lay on the pavement ‘screaming in pain’.
‘I experienced an attack of unbelievable violence,’ she said.
‘Two hooded strangers took me out of the car I was travelling in to hit me on the legs with iron bars. That night, I really thought I was going to stay there… I was screaming in pain.
‘I tried to protect myself as much as possible. I have a very painful memory.’
On September 14, 2021, four men participated in the attack on Kheira Hamraoui were arrested. One of suspects, with the nickname ‘the little one’, reportedly admitted to police that they were hired to attack Hamraoui to handicap her for $499 [€500].
The investigators have to arrest the fifth person, considered one of the main characters in the scheme. None of the convicted ones is keen on giving out his name, perhaps for fear of reprisal.
The police have also been searching for the intermediary, who was in constant contact with the Diallo during the mission. Although the suspect remains unidentified, the police anticipate that it could be “a relative of Aminata Diallo”.
Most soccer pundits are of the opinion that arrest of the former PSG player and her indictment for “aggravated violence” and “criminal association” and her detention on Friday certainly mean the end of her career, when she had been without a club since the summer.
Diallo has been without a club since her contract with PSG expired at the end of last season, has maintained she’s innocent in relation to the attack on Hamraoui.
