What is Hakimi’s current status?
On Thursday, Hakimi was questioned by detectives looking into rape claims. The 24-year-old was placed under judicial monitoring by an investigating judge but now has been charged with rape. His lawyer however has made a statement suggesting Hakimi is a victim of racketeering. His wife however has distanced herself from the incident and since separated because of the allegation.
What is Paris Saint Germain’s point of view?
Following the original allegation, PSG sent a statement to the French media in support of Hakimi, suggesting that the player had denied any wrongdoing and believe in justice.
