Mathias Pogba Threatens To Expose Brother, Paul
On Sunday, Mathias, who is also a footballer, shared a bizarre three-minute video on social media in which he promised to reveal “explosive” information about his younger sibling, Paul.
In the video, Mathias claims to know secrets about Paul and his new agent, Rafaela Pimenta, alledging that his brother, Pogba, hired a sorcerer to put a spell on his France teammate Kylian Mbappé who has become the biggest star of Les Blues.
“The French, English, Italian and Spanish public, in other words the whole world, as well as my brother’s fans, and even more so the French team and Juventus, my brother’s team-mates and his sponsors deserve to know certain things,” said Mathias.
“In order to make an informed decision if he deserves the admiration, respect and love of the public. If he deserves his place in the French team and the honour of playing in the World Cup. If he deserves to be a starter at Juventus. If he is a trustworthy person, that any player deserves to have at his side.
“Kylian, now do you understand? I have nothing negative against you, my words are for your good, and everything is true and proven. The marabou is known! Sorry to this brother, a so-called Muslim deep in witchcraft, it’s never good to have a hypocrite and a traitor near you.”
Mathias finished the video with a rant about Paris Saint-Germain forward Mbappe. “I will tell you very important things about him and there will be elements and many testimonies to confirm my words,” he said. “Everything could be explosive and make a lot of noise.”
Paul Pogba Accuses His Brother Mathias Of Blackmail
Later on Sunday evening, the story took a remarkable twist when Paul told Italian and French authorities that an organised criminal gang involving his brother have blackmailed him for a sum of €13 million, which is equivalent to £11million.
In interviews with investigators, Pogba is believed to have told them he was intimidated by two hooded men carrying assault rifles in a Paris apartment in March and they demanded he hand over €13 million in funds.
The men in question are said to be his brother and childhood friends who believe they are entitled to some of his finances for protecting him.
In January, Pogba cut ties with one individual after discovering he used his credit card to steal €200,000 and kicked him out of his house in Manchester.
The blackmailers are understood to have shown up at Juventus’ training ground last month and Pogba, with the help of club lawyers, decided to go to the police.
The gang are alleged to have threatened to invent a fake news story that Pogba requested a Muslim witch doctor cast a spell on Kylian Mbappe – something he strongly denies.
Pogba’s Family Statement
In a statement signed by Pauls’s mother, Yeo Moriba, and the family lawyer expressed disappointment in the social media video confirming prior extortion attempts by Mathias.
“Unfortunately, Mathias Pogba’s recent social media posts come as no surprise and follow other attempts over a prolonged period of time to try to extort money from Paul Pogba.
“The facts have been reported to the Italian and French police a month ago and there will be no further comment on the ongoing investigations.
“Paul Pogba’s lawyers, Yeo Moriba (mother of Mathias and Paul) and Rafaela Pimenta,” the statement reads.
Mathias Pogba Reacts To Blackmail Allegation By Paul
Reacting in a Twitter thread on Monday, Mathias accused his brother of lying to police and trying to send him to prison despite “almost dying because of hm”.
Mathias also claimed the world will see that there is “nobody more coward, traitorous and hypocritical” than the former Manchester United midfielder.
He wrote, “My little brother is finally starting to show his true face. Since it was he who started talking, to lie to the police and who brought out the information, you can’t blame me.
“Paul, you really wanted to shut me up completely, to lie and send me to prison, I suspected it. Now it’s true, my version of the facts actually happened and, unlike you, I have enough to prove my words and your lies.
“I’ll tell you again: brother, manipulating people is not good! It’s not about money: you implicated me in spite of myself, I almost died because of you, you left me in a hole and you want to play the innocent one. When everything is said, people will see that there is no bigger coward, bigger traitor and bigger hypocrite than you on this earth.”
Paul Pogba was always thought to be close to his brother, Mathias — they were often pictured together — but French authorities are now investigating the claims he was threatened over a four-month period, including acts of intimidation in Manchester, Paris and Turin.
