PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN midfielder Aminata Diallo has been released from custody without charge after claims she hired men to attack her team-mate.
Diallo was driving the car when it was ambushed by thugs who dragged fellow PSG Women star Kheira Hamraoui and beat her with iron bars on November 4.Aminata Diallo has been released from police custody without charge[/caption] Kheira Hamraoui was attacked by men with iron bars with Diallo initially accused of orchestrating it[/caption]
Hamraoui, Diallo’s rival for the holding midfield slot in the team, needed stitches in her legs and hands after the brutal assault.
Diallo was arrested on Wednesday morning in Paris over her alleged involvement in orchestrating it.
But according to RTL in France, the 26-year-old has been let go.
Investigators conducted a number of interviews via telephone, the report adds.
It also states Diallo ‘disputed her responsibility’ throughout her 36 hours being held by police.
Hamraoui, who only joined the club from Barcelona in July, was ambushed while returning from a party organised by the club.

Diallo drove her and another PSG Women star Sakina Karchaoui home because all three live in the same region of Paris.
But after Karchaoui was dropped off, the yobs stormed the car and targeted Hamraoui.
Diallo’s childhood friend – currently serving time for racketeering in a French prison – who was accused of making ‘phone threats’ from calls made behind bars targeting a number of PSG Women players has also had the latest accusations dropped against him.
According to L’Equipe, the phone calls started in late October.
The report added that the caller said he was a married man from Barcelona who had an affair with Hamraoui during her time in the Catalan capital and promised to take revenge after she ‘ruined his life’.
However, although originally the calls were seen as a cover for the attack, it is thought they actually alerted police to the suggestion of an involvement from a team-mate.
The caller allegedly gave details of a ‘fall’ Hamraoui had at a team-mate’s house party – details only those in attendance would know.
