French soccer world champion Paul Pogba is allegedly being blackmailed. His brother Mathias Pogba (32) published a video on social media on Saturday evening in which he announced spectacular “revelations” about his three-year-old brother in four languages.
Then you can decide whether the Juventus attacking player “really deserves admiration and respect and his place in the French national team,” said the video of the former Guinean football player. He published the video in French, English, Italian and Spanish.
He also wanted to talk about superstar Kylian Mbappé from Paris Saint-Germain and Rafaela Pimenta, who took over Pogba’s advice after the death of Mino Raiola. The revelations are “probably explosive” and would “make a lot of noise,” said Mathias Pogba. Mathia’s twin brother Florentin, who also played football for Guinea, also belongs to the family.
“Unfortunately, Mathias Pogba’s recent statements on social media are not a surprise. It completes threats and organized blackmail attempts against Paul Pogba,” said Paul Pogba, their mother Yeo Moriba and his advisor Pimenta in a statement, as reported by “L’Equipe”, among others.
The responsible authorities in Italy and France were called in a month ago: “There will be no further comments regarding the ongoing investigations.”
According to information from the news channel “France Info”, a gang of childhood friends and armed men are said to have demanded 13 million euros for “services rendered” from Pogba in March. They are said to have ambushed the midfield star several times. Brother Mathias also recognized Pogba among the blackmailers. A childhood friend of Pogba stole 200,000 euros from his credit card earlier this year.
Pogba is said to be paying a large sum of money if he wants to prevent the publication of allegedly compromising videos, the media said. The midfielder returned to his former club Juventus in the summer after six years at Manchester United. He is currently in rehabilitation after a meniscus injury.
