Kadidiatou Diani files complaint for sexual assault against former PSG Women coach Didier Ollé-Nicolle

Le Parisien are reporting that France international striker Kadidiatou Diani (28) has filed a complaint for sexual assault last June against her former Paris Saint-Germain head coach Didier Ollé-Nicolle.

Diani has reported two situations that allegedly happened in August 2021. Ollé-Nicolle reportedly touched several of PSG Women players’ buttocks with a miniature baseball bat during a pre-season tour in the United States. According to Diani, it was not the first inappropriate action from the PSG head coach. At half-time of a pre-season’s friendly game, Ollé-Nicolle reportedly touched Diani’s backside with his hand.

Le Parisien understands that similar situations marred the 2021-2022 season of the PSG Women’s team. A particular player, minor at the time, was upset at being regularly targeted by “inappropriate” words and gestures from Ollé-Nicolle. A judicial investigation was opened against an unnamed party on May 2022 for “sexual assault by a person in authority” thanks to elements revealed by the investigation regarding Kheira Hamraoui’s assault. Ollé-Nicolle was heard only as a witness and the internal investigation carried out by PSG did not provide results nor substantial evidence.

However, Ollé-Nicolle left PSG in August 2022 by mutual agreement, a year before the end of his contract. The head coach’s lawyer told Le Parisien that his client “has neither been heard nor summoned to explain the facts mentioned in this complaint.” He adds that Ollé-Nicolle could in turn file a complaint for slanderous denunciation.
