OGC Nice Defender Diawara Jailed in France for Extortion

PARIS – OGC Nice Senegalese defender Souleymane Diawara was jailed in Marseille on charges of extortion, La Provence newspaper reported on Friday.

The newspaper explained that the former Olympique de Marseille defender took revenge for being scammed into buying a car for 50,000 euros ($52,900) two and a half years ago.

According to the French channel BFM TV, the player paid the amount but never got the car until, after the two and a half years, the seller gave him an allegedly stolen car.

Diawara allegedly asked his brother along with three other accomplices to break into the seller’s home, where they assaulted and threatened him.

Diawara’s lawyer has denied in statements to the media that his client had resorted to violence, appealing for his release.

The player is still being held, along with his brother, in Marseille, while two of the accomplices are being held in the southern city of Nimes, but the police are searching for the third suspected accomplice.

Diawara debuted in France in 1999 with Le Havre and joined Marseille from 2009 to 2014 before moving to Nice during the close season.
