Wissam Ben Yedder, the 32 year-old Captain of AS Monaco football team and French international, has been accused of rape.

Two females, aged 19 and 20, have accused Ben Yedder and his younger brother of rape and sexual aggression on Monday, July 10, at an address in Beausoleil during a party.

The allegations are being investigated by the Nice police, having first been reported to the Cagnes-sur-mer police station. Ben Yedder has not yet been questioned, according to local sources.

Ben Yedder netted 19 goals for Monaco last season, and is under contract with the club until the end of the upcoming 2023/24 season.
