"It's been ten months that I live a martyrdom", the confession of Kheira Hamraoui after the last twists


Kheira Hamraoui said this Friday how much she has suffered over the past ten months, both because of the aggression suffered on November 4 and

Kheira Hamraoui put his own words to his "case", in an interview (recorded Thursday) with Bruce Toussaint broadcast on BFM TV this Friday.

The PSG player, 32, spoke only two days after her teammate Aminata Diallo was released under judicial supervision after a few days of detention (decision of the judge of freedoms and detention including the Versailles prosecutor's office appealed).

Aminata Diallo, 27, suspected of being the sponsor of Kheira Hamraoui's attack on November 4, remains indicted for "aggravated violence" and "criminal association".

“It's a storm for me, said Hamraoui on the set of BFM, about the twists and turns of recent days. I am struck by everything that is going on in this affair, which is destroying my family and me.

It's frightening and it hurts... It's been ten months since I've been living through an ordeal.

I have always said that I trust justice and the investigators whom I thank for their extraordinary work.

Targeted by iron bars in the legs, on November 4, the PSG player notably described the circumstances and her feelings of the attack: “People were hidden behind a car and suddenly appeared.

I was scared.

With the adrenaline, the blows I didn't feel them too much.

The scariest thing was seeing hooded men.

I was lucky that a car arrived and they fled, because it could have lasted longer..."

“For me, the smear campaign is just as powerful as my aggression”

But beyond the blows received, Hamraoui speaks of the suffering that was his in the months following the attack.

“When I saw this somewhat surprising media cabal against me, I understood like everyone else that there was something fishy,” she confides.

I couldn't go from victim to culprit like that.

I was still beaten up with iron bars... My private life concerns me.

It hurts to get dirty, humiliated by supporters, everyone, on social media.

I feel like I've been victimized twice.

To me, the smear campaign is just as powerful as my aggression.

I put it on the same level.


The PSG midfielder also complains that she has still not been rehabilitated within her own club: “I am no longer part of the plans and it is a double penalty.

I don't have the words to describe what I feel, it's so cruel.

I still haven't been reinstated.

Yesterday (Wednesday), I went to see a game of my teammates for the first time and I saw that a player was wearing my jersey number (14).

I have been destroyed.

With the experience and the prize list, I still deserve a little respect from my club.


The rest, however, it is on the ground that Hamraoui envisages it: "My first objective is that the whole world knows that I am a victim, says the player, who plans to create a foundation dedicated to the fight against harassment of young people in sport.

I am still under contract (with PSG).

I want to replay matches, return to the France team.

There is a World Cup in 2023.”

At the same time, Sonia Souid, Hamraoui's agent, protested this Friday in L'Equipe about the lack of attention given to her client by PSG and the FFF in recent months:

“What I blame both, but especially PSG, is the lack of compassion, humanity and heart.

Kheira still hasn't received any message of support from PSG leaders.


There were two press releases at the start of the affair... Yes, but today?

Radio silence.

A deafening silence, and it continues.

She feels transparent, as was the case on Wednesday when she went to see her teammates in the Champions League.


Souid points to a symptomatic episode in his eyes of the cynicism of the FFF: “For example, when Ms. Diani and Ms. Katoto, during a Blue match, make an A with their hands to support Aminata Diallo, the Federation does not condemn.

Kheira was with the France team at that time.

As soon as I saw that, I had a discussion with Kheira, and I told him: “We won't make the weight”.

Because we are talking about two executive players from the France team.

Sport takes precedence, and Hamraoui was sacrificed, even if she was abused, harassed.

Also agent of Aminata Diallo from the end of 2020 to January 2022, Souid also explains that she could not suspect the facts of which the Grenoble woman is suspected.

At that time (after Diallo's first police custody, released shortly after the attack), you would have asked me to cut off my two hands that Aminata was innocent, I would have done it.

I said to myself: “Why would she have done that?” It was the end of October, she had been recalled to the France team.

She was playing with PSG (...).

All signals were green for her.

And Aminata, the one I know, is a smart person.

Aminata is mature, courteous.

She is a young woman who expresses herself and writes very well.

It is not the one we are describing today.

This Aminata, I didn't know her.
