Former Barcelona director Eric Abidal and his wife Hayet have been questioned by judiciary Police.

According to reports gathered from French newspaper on Thursday, the couple were interviewed as part of the investigation into the attack on PSG Feminines midfielder Kheira Hamraoui last month.

Frenchman Abidal was questioned on his relationship with Hamraoui after it was revealed that her phone chip was registered under his name.

In his response, the former defender confirmed being in contact with her (Kheira) recognizing having had an ‘intimate relationship’ with her which led to his wife asking for a divorce.

Abidal’s interview came a day after (Tuesday) his wife’s as revealed on her Instagram page that she was questioned on Monday:

“Relieved. Happy. I was finally interviewed yesterday by the [Versailles police service] as I had asked, as a simple witness. I hope to have helped the investigators.”

31-year-old Hamraoui had been driven back from a club event by teammate Aminata Diallo who had earlier suffered the ignominy of being labelled as the offender but was later cleared to be innocent when she was dragged out of the car and hit on the legs by an assailant using an iron bar.
