The drama surrounding Paul Pogba continues – even though he’s left Manchester United.
You might be wondering: ‘why on earth are Stretty News still covering Pogba guff?’
That’s a perfectly reasonable question, but this is pure gold… in the weirdest way possible.
Pogba’s brother, Mathias, has vowed to release ‘explosive’ information regarding the Juventus midfielder in a bizarre video shared to Twitter – after recently joining the platform.
Mathias Pogba claims the information he has on his brother could lead to the public, as well as the Juventus and France squad turning against him.
He alleges that he has ‘important things’ to say about Kylian Mbappe.
“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,” Mathias Pogba said, as quoted by the Daily Mail.
“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.”
So, even after United, the drama follows Pogba when things were supposed to be rosy in Turin. His ‘home’ he took a pay cut to return to.
Pogba denies witch doctor claims
Pogba’s lawyers, Yeo Moriba – who is also his mother – and Rafaela Pimenta have since responded to Mathias’s threats.
“Mathias Pogba’s recent statements on social networks are unfortunately not a surprise. They are in addition to threats and organised extortion attempts against Paul Pogba,” they said.
Paul Pogba claims that in a bid to put pressure on him to give in to their €13m blackmail attempts, the gang told him they would leak that the Juventus player asked a witch doctor in his family circle to cast a spell on Kylian Mbappé, which Pogba denies. https://t.co/1nGap3k7PC

France Info claims new revelations from police sources tonight that Paul Pogba has informed police investigators that his brother has been part of a concerted effort to blackmail him for €13 million.
It has been confirmed that French prosecutors have opened an investigation into the possible “attempted blackmail by an organised gang”, before Mathias then took to social media to claim the media was trying to spin things and that his brother was lying.
On dirait que certains ne comprennent pas pourquoi je parle de l'histoire de mon cousin. Quelqu'un qui n'est pas honnête avec les policiers sans raison, sera t-il honnête avec vous, même si il parle au travers de ses avocats ? Sinon pour le reste, patience, ça arrive…

Investigators, according the media outlet, understand Mbappé to be linked to the affair only through Pogba mentioning the fact that his blackmailers wanted to discredit him and thus put further pressure on him to pay up by spreading messages including that he would have asked a witch doctor from inside his family circle to cast a spell on Kylian Mbappé, which the player denied to be true.
