For him, it was a double jeopardy. Kheira Hamraoui, attacked with iron bars on November 4, 2021, returning from dinner at “combination” with the PSG women’s section, was also excluded from the club’s professional team, forcing him to train alone. Tuesday, September 20, after failing to transfer him to another club, PSG announced theirs “coach provision”. The player’s lawyers prefer, for their part, talk about “reunion” in the professional group.
This sporting twist gets to the heart of the legal case. Wednesday, September 21, his former teammate, Aminata Diallo, was charged for “aggravated violence” and “conspiracy” there is an appointment with a judge of liberties and detention who must determine whether he remains detained in the remand center of Versailles (Yvelines).
Amicable termination proposal
Sidelined from the professional team since the continuation, on July 20, Kheira Hamraoui trained alone, with a physical trainer made available at the club, who wanted to find a solution for him before the closing the transfer of the market, on July 20. September.
If there is no agreement on another formation, PSG chooses to integrate it with professional workers. The former Barcelona player is now with technician Gérard Prêcheur – whom he met in Lyon – for league and Coupe de France matches.
“The club said that Kheira was returned because the transfer window was officially closed and he did not find a club. But that is not all. I did not take any steps and no research to find him a new base ., accurate to world his agent, Sonia Souid.
Joined a few days earlier, the club assured for their part that it did everything to find a way from the international tricolor. Loan offers have been made from European clubs such as Juventus Turin and Manchester United. PSG also offered him a good end to his contract.
But the player’s entourage, determined to honor the last year of the contract that ends in June 2023, never followed these offers. PSG admitted that they are fighting a “wall” during the negotiation phase.
“A big managerial job” for PSG
Kheira Hamraoui was already sidelined on April 23, following his training dispute with Sandy Baltimore, on the eve of a Champions League semi-final first leg against Lyon. This transfer of arms also involved the Parisians Marie-Antoinette Katoto and Kadidatou Diani, who came to face Kheira Hamraoui, who has not played an official match since then.
Hamraoui, 39 capped by France, will now have to find his place in a team that has started the season with a largely revamped workforce. In addition to the new coach Gérard Prêcheur, the group has recorded many departures and many arrivals, especially in midfield, with the signings of Dutchman Jackie Groenen and Oriane Jean-François, each from of Manchester United and Paris CF. A way for the staff of Paris to turn the page on a season of 2021-2022 marked by activity of aggression and internal fights that further divided the locker room.
“Kheira is not in a state of anger and revenge. He really wants to turn this page and write a new one. As far as he is concerned, there is no problem. We do not expect anything from MME Katoto or from MME Diani, who doesn’t treat him well, but certainly has a lot of managerial work to do in the PSG side., added Sonia Souid, who recalled that the club never showed the slightest sign of support for her player since the start of the event.
And if the Hamraoui clan declares it “no confidence” and hoping for a healthy competition, the club, in full preparation for its first leg Champions League play-off match against Sweden in Hacken, Wednesday September 21, is not very specific about the terms of its return and the future its role in the group. Paris-Saint-Germain denied the idea of any pressure related to the case. “The solution was not found during the transfer market, so the transfer window ends, and returns to the group with an available coach”, we summarized the club. No element of Gérard Prêcheur’s wishes or the reaction of some players filtered through.
The one with a “barely a chance”, according to PSG, wearing the Parisian tunic a few days ago may find playing time in the season. One thing is certain: it is not for the famous European debut in Paris against the Swedish formation in Hacken.
The triple winner of the Champions League with Lyon and Barcelona was not included in the list of players allowed to play in the continental event. However, it can be registered, if there is qualification, in the group stage, UEFA allows two changes.
