Paris, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 18th Nov, 2021 ) :Two weeks after being assaulted in a mystery attack in Paris, Kheira Hamraoui was on Thursday left out of France's squad for the upcoming 2023 women's World Cup qualifiers against Kazakhstan and Wales.
Hamraoui required stitches and missed her next game with PSG.
"Like you, I have been reading in the press, what Kheira has gone through," said Diacre.
"It is a trauma that is not only physical but psychological.
"There is an investigation in progress. We will let justice be done. I hope we will get to the bottom of the story quickly so that the two players concerned, and the entire Paris Saint-Germain club which is very affected, can quickly move on.
"Everyone is looking for explanations.
I have no comments to make because I do not know the whole story, only what I can read in the press and that is not always very fair." On Tuesday, Hamraoui appealed to the media to respect her privacy amid speculation about her relations with Eric Abidal after with former French international's name was dragged into the investigation.
Hamraoui was using a telephone SIM card registered in Abidal's name on the night of the attack.
A source close to the inquiry said Hamraoui had told the police that the SIM card was "in her ex's name." Abidal is a household name in France. He made a stunning return to his playing career in 2013, a year after undergoing a liver transplant.
The Versailles prosecutors' office, which is leading the investigation, said investigators could soon question Abidal and could also question his wife Hayet, while saying it was "just one lead among many".
Diallo was held for questioning for nearly 35 hours before being released without charge.
