Barcelona legend’s wife files for divorce after confessing having extra-marital affair with PSG star

Eric Abidal’s wife has filed for a divorce after he admitted to having an affair with Paris Saint-Germain star Kheira Hamraoui, according to reports.

Prior to joining PSG, Hamraoui, 31, played for Barcelona while Abidal was sporting director.

She was attacked earlier this month, with thugs beating her with an iron bar.

Investigators into the attack initially held Hamraoui’s team-mate Aminata Diallo for questioning for 36 hours.

But they have reportedly since moved their inquiry away from Diallo.

A connection with Abidal was discovered by detectives, after it came to light that Hamraoui’s phone was registered in the Frenchman’s name.

It was this development that led to Abidal admitting to an affair with Hamraoui, wife Hayet claims.

In a statement sent to AFP by Hayet’s lawyer Nicolas Cellupica, she alleges that he admitted ‘to an adulterous relationship with Ms Hamraoui’.
