PSG’s Aminata Diallo arrested after attacking club mate

Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Aminata Diallo has been arrested in connection with an alleged assault on a teammate, the club said on Wednesday.

The France international was arrested on Wednesday morning after an assault that took place last week.

PSG confirmed Diallo had been placed in police custody but did not name the alleged victim publicly.

A club statement read: “Paris Saint-Germain acknowledges that Aminata Diallo was remanded in custody this morning by the SRPJ of Versailles as part of proceedings launched after an attack against the club’s players last Thursday night.

“Paris Saint-Germain condemns in the strongest possible terms the violence committed. Since Thursday evening, November 4, the club has taken all necessary measures to guarantee the health, well-being and safety of its players.

“PSG is working closely with the SRPJ of Versailles to shed light on the facts. The club is closely monitoring the progress of the proceedings and will examine what action needs to be taken.”

Diallo joined PSG in 2016 and was on loan from National Women’s Soccer League club Utah Royals for the 2020 season.
