It is difficult not to immediately think about the previous one because it is very famous. TOminata Diallo would have done like Tonya Harding, the figure skater who knocked out colleague Nancy Kerrigan and who saw her story become a movie. The Paris Saint Germain footballer was stopped on suspicion of being the instigator of the attack on one of his team mates, 31-year-old Kheira Hamraoui. The French newspaper L’équipe reports that Aminata Diallo, a 26-year-old midfielder, allegedly organized the ambush against his partner-rival.

The attack dates back to last week. On Thursday 4 November the two players returned together from a dinner organized by their club at the Bois de Boulogne. Got out of the car they were stopped by men with their faces covered who hit with bars only one of the two: Kheira Hamraoui, midfielder recently returned from Barcelona. For her, some stitches and a forced stop for a few days.

The club had made it known he was absent in recent days for personal reasons. With the interrogation of the teammate it was made known what had happened. Although for now the PSG does not comment and only says that it collaborates with the investigators. “Paris Saint-Germain can confirm that Aminata Diallo is in police custody at the Versailles regional service following the attack on one of the club’s players on Thursday. The PSG absolutely condemns violence. Since Thursday all measures have been taken to ensure the health, well-being and safety of the entire women’s team ».

An internal rivalry that cannot fail to remember that between American skaters Nancy Kerrigan and Tonya Harding on the eve of the 1994 Olympics, in Lillehammer. Kerrigan was shot in the knee during a workout. A man sent by Tonya Harding’s ex-husband Jeff Gillooly, who confirmed his wife’s involvement, hit her. At the cinema, a film with Margot Robbie as the villain told about it. For the record, they both went to the Olympics. Nancy Kerrigan won silver. Tonya Harding avoided jail, but her career on ice also ended with the 1991 national title revoked.
