Achraf Hakimi is set to feature for PSG after the defender was accused of rape.

Paris Saint-Germain defender Achraf Hakimi is to be selected despite being investigated for alleged rape.

On Monday, a judicial official stated that French prosecutors opened a preliminary investigation into a rape accusation against the Morocco international.

According to report, a 23-year-old woman reported to the police over the weekend that Hakimi raped her. The woman didn’t want to press charges, but the prosecutor’s office still decided to open an investigation.

The 24-year-old  has not been charged by the authorities.

Reports stated that the defender denies all allegations against him with his club backing the player and willing to select him to face Nantes in the Ligue 1 game on Saturday.

Neither Hakimi and PSG have not made public statements regarding the investigation.

Hakimi’s lawyer Fanni Colin is in constant dialogue with the investigators and the player is willing to completely cooperate with the investigation, according to sources.

The 24-year-old attended the FIFA Best awards ceremony in Paris on Monday where he was selected in the 2022 FIFPRO World XI.

The fullback was born in Spain but was a star of Morocco’s history-making team at the World Cup, did not play in PSG’s victory over Marseille last week because of thigh problems.
