Fayza Lamari, mother of Kylian Mbappé, admits having exchanged with Aminata Diallo, PSG midfielder suspected of having ordered the attack on her teammate Kheira Hamraoui and of having fomented a plot to obtain an extension at PSG.
The Mbappé clan quoted in the Hamraoui-Diallo affair. In the Parisian article on the maneuvers that Diallo and his unofficial agent Cesar M. are suspected of having implemented to obtain a contract extension at PSG, the names of Kylian Mbappé and his relatives appear. Her mother also confirmed having met the player. She had posed with the PSG striker on social networks on November 18, 2021, on the sidelines of the presentation of the comic strip “My name is Kylian”, eight days after his placement in police custody following the assault on her teammate Kheira Hamraoui. She was freed without any charges being brought against her. Since then, the investigation has advanced and suspects Diallo of being the sponsor of the attack on Hamraoui, to whom she has a deep hatred.
It is in another part of the affair that the rapprochement between Diallo and Mbappé is mentioned. It concerns the plot that Diallo and Cesar M. are suspected of having led to obtain a contract extension at PSG. The duo would thus have boasted of a closeness with the Mbappé clan to the point of “seeming to feel untouchable”, according to the investigators. The origin of this rapprochement dates back to the weeks following the player’s custody on November 10. A former journalist from L’Equipe, close to the Mbappé clan and from Grenoble like Diallo, would have served as a link.
Contacted by Le Parisien, Fayza Lamari, mother of Kylian Mbappé acknowledges having met the player as part of a documentary project devoted to the Hamraoui affair that an American production company intended to develop in collaboration with Zebra Valley, the company whose Kylian is the owner. “We saw each other three times, she explains. A first time in November in Paris during an evening presentation of the comic strip on the life of Kylian (as evidenced by the photo mentioned above, editor’s note) , then in Dubai during the Christmas holidays and a third time at the Parc des Princes during a Champions League match.
Mbappé’s mother admits having “raised the subject of Diallo’s contract extension”
An intercepted conversation between Aminata Diallo and the ex-journalist close to Mbappé would have suggested to the investigators that Fayza Lamari could intercede with the leaders of the club in favor of the extension of the contract of Aminata Diallo. The proximity seems to have blown a wind of optimism with Diallo and the former journalist on a happy outcome for a new contract. The mother of the PSG striker acknowledges today having “raised the subject of Aminata Diallo’s contract extension with the leaders of PSG, but in a very informal, disinterested way and always in the context of the documentary project”, she assures.
She also promises to have absolutely not spoken about this subject with the owners of the club during their meeting in Dubai last April in the midst of negotiations for an extension of Kylian. “There was never any question of this subject during my trip to Doha last April where I was focused on extending my son’s contract,” she promises. Zebra Valley reportedly finally pulled out of the documentary project a few weeks later. “When I learned that PSG did not want to offer Aminata a new contract for reasons probably related to the case, I distanced myself from her”, concludes Fayza Lamari who has never been heard by the investigators.
