Fulham defender Issa Diop arrested in France
Fulham defender Issa Diop has been arrested in France.
Diop was in police custody on Monday accused of ‘making threats’ towards his ex-partner.
He was arrested at the Pullman Hotel, in his home city of Toulouse, on Sunday following complaints by the unnamed woman, reports Depeche newspaper.
The complaint was filed last week, but local police waited until Sunday to arrest Diop after he arrived from the UK.
His current legal status ‘under arrest’ allows police to hold him for 24 hours, but extensions can be granted by a judge.
Fulham released the following statement: “We are aware of reports emanating from France this morning regarding one of our players Issa Diop. We are currently liaising with the player’s representatives to establish the facts.”
