Mathias Pogba and Paul Pogba’s family crisis worsened as Paul alleged being extorted at gunpoint
Mathias Pogba has threatened to disclose ‘great revelations’ about his younger brother and former Manchester United star, Paul Pogba. The relationship between the two brothers from Guinean parents has gone sour and their family crisis has deepened.
Mathias threatens to reveal explosive secrets about Paul Pogba: mentions Mbappe.
Tensions are simmering between former Manchester United and Juventus star Paul Pogba and his senior brother and ex-footballer Mathias Pogba. Mathias had released a video in four different languages shared on social media about his resolve to expose ‘explosive revelations’ that will ’cause a lot of noise’ about his younger brother.
Mathias, in the video, reiterated his resolve to lay bare the hidden underbelly behind the person of Paul Pogba. According to him, after his ‘great revelations’ about Paul Pogba, England, Italy, and France football fans will decide whether he deserves the fame, praise, and accolades he has been accorded as a footballer. Even his sponsors, the French National team, and his supporters will know whether he deserves the sponsorship or inclusion in the French World Cup squad in Qatar.
The former Wrexham and Patrick Thistle player also mentioned French and PSG star Kylian Mbappe in the face-off claiming that Pogba had allegedly attempted to cast a spell on the highly rated youngster.
Meanwhile, Paul Pogba has issued a statement through his lawyer debunking the claims of Mathias, saying the footballer is not surprised.
The statement, which was signed by his lawyer, and his mother and agent, Yeo Pogba, admitted that the videos released by Mathis are ‘unfortunately not a surprise’; that they are part of previous ‘threats and extortion attempts’ at the player.

According to reports, Paul Pogba had already informed the Police before Mathia’s video of a plan allegedly “organized by his brother and friends to blackmail and extort money from him”.
Pogba narrated how hooded men, in March, dragged him with assault rifles into an apartment in Paris. The men demanded £11m from him.
The hooded men reportedly demanded the money as compensation for the ‘discreet security’ they have been offering him for over 13 years.
Paul Pogba said that he has been confronted by the men when he was in Manchester and again in Turin when he joined Juventus. He had finally decided to contact the Police over the brewing crisis.

Meanwhile, Judicial sources have confirmed the opening of an investigation into ‘attempted extortion in an organized gang.’
“Investigators from the Central Office of Judicial Police Combating Organised Crime that he was trapped by childhood friends, and two hooded men armed with assault rifles; investigations on attempted extortion in an organized gang is ongoing”, a police statement read.
Sources close to Pogba’s family have claimed that the £11m demanded by the gang is being orchestrated by ‘Pogba’s childhood friends’ so as not to disseminate the compromising information and videos about the renowned footballer.
Pogba also confirmed that the nodded men with assault rifle wanted the money for the purported ‘protection they said they have been offering going back to 13 years since his days at Manchester United.’
Paul stated that ‘hooded men with assault rifles’ also mentioned lack of assistance as the reason for demanding the money because they claimed he had not helped them since becoming a professional footballer.
According to him, he has always helped his friends by giving them necessary financial assistance when the need arises. However, in January, he had to kick one out of his house in Manchester when he used his credit card to steal £170,000.
After Paul Pogba had reported the matter to the Police, the Judicial sources confirmed that an investigation is ongoing with ‘Paul’s big brother, Mathias and his childhood friends as prime suspects.’
Mathias, who was obviously upset, took to his twitter handle to deny the claims by Paul saying,
‘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 happens and unlike you.’
In Mathias’s viral video, the 32-year-old said;
‘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,’ he said.
‘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.’
He also questioned Paul’s new agent Pimenta who has taken over from Paul’s deceased former agent, Mino Raiola.
Paul’s lawyers have debunked Mathias claim saying;
“Mathias Pogba’s recent statements on social networks are unfortunately not a
surprise,’ they said. ‘They are in addition to threats and organised extortion attempts against Paul Pogba.’
While Mathias also added that he had something to say about Kylian Mbappe, Paul admitted that his elder brother want to accuse him of contacting a ‘holy man to cast a spell on the PSG star.’..TAP.TO.READ MORE.
