Eric Abidal came out of silence on social networks this Tuesday. The former France team player posted a message to his wife, Hayet, four days after the latter filed for divorce. She announced her decision in a press release explaining that her husband had an extra-marital relationship with Kheira Hamraoui, a PSG player who was assaulted on November 4.

“Hayet Abidal forgive me, writes the former FC Barcelona player. Whatever your decision, you will remain in my eyes the woman of my life, and above all the mother of our wonderful children. deserve this humiliation even if it kills me alive. El hamdouli’allah An sha ‘allah one day you will forgive me. “

The name of Eric Abidal returned in the Hamraoui affair, after the discovery by the investigators of a chip in his name on the phone of the player Parisienne, abused after a night out with the rest of the team. Two men had stopped the car of Aminata Diallo, her teammate, in which she had taken a seat, before hitting her in the legs.

The French should be questioned, as well as his wife, as part of a judicial investigation opened last Monday and entrusted the next day to a Versailles investigating judge. Nothing has filtered yet on this subject. “He has for the moment no summons served by anyone, said Me Olivier Martin, his lawyer at RMC Sport last week. sooner or later that if he has to be summoned, he will answer present to answer the investigators’ questions. He only asks for one thing: that this summons be done as quickly as possible possible.”

Abidal held the position of sporting director of FC Barcelona, ​​a club where Hamraoui also played. His counsel denounced the media treatment of the case. “This request (for divorce, editor’s note) is the consequence of the unrestrained and indiscriminate mediatization around this news item, which is more to the detriment of the elementary rules of secrecy of the ???? investigation and respect for his privacy, he replied in writing. His only reaction is in one word: it is appalling. “

The former Lyonnais also assured Kheira Hamraoui that he was not involved in this attack. “During this exchange, my client told him that he had no relation, neither direct nor indirect, with the aggression to which the players were victims . “
