This weekend, Paul Pogba reluctantly found himself plunged into the heart of a dark history of extortion attempts in an organized gang since the publication of a virulent video of one of his brothers, Mathias, in which the latter promises ” big reveals. about the France national team midfielder. A case that has been legalized by the revelations, which even involve Kylian Mbappé.
• Who is Mathias Pogba?
The eldest of the brothers with his Florentine twin, Mathias Pogba, 32, is the older brother of Paul Pogba, 29. A Guinean professional and international footballer, Mathias toured, during a less prestigious career than that of the French world champion, second or even third zone clubs: in France (Quimper, Tours), in Italy (Pescara), in England (Crewe Alexandra, Crawley Town), Spain (Manchego, Lorca, Murcia), Holland (Sparta Rotterdam), Scotland (Partick Thistle), Slovenia (Tabor Sezana) and Wales (Wrexham).
The striker’s last experience was short in Nacional 2 with ASM Belfort, with whom he only participated in 12 games between August 2021 and April 2022, hampered by injury. The one who is currently without a club had refused to play with the club’s B team in Regional 1, when he was no longer called up to the first team by his coach. He was a regular consultant for La Chaîne L’Equipe between December 2021 and May 2022.
Very close to Paul Pogba, whom he often spoke on the phone and whom he saw as soon as their respective schedules allowed him with his Florentine twin, Mathias always seemed very publicly present with the youngest of the brothers. He was by his side notably during the 2018 World Cup or Euro 2021, bringing his good humor and smile to the stands during Blues matches.
• What does he blame his brother Pablo for?
The relationship between Paul and Mathias could have deteriorated a few months ago, since the former was present in March at a gala evening organized by the latter at the prestigious Shangri-La hotel, in the 16th district of Paris. All smiles, the two brothers made a joint appearance tonight to launch the Golden Score association, created by Mathias Pogba, whose goal is to advise and help athletes prepare for their later career. On Instagram we can see a publication dated March 24 where Paul congratulates his brother for the launch of this association. A few days before their relationship takes a turn for the least conflictive.
In a text read in front of the camera and published on TikTok on Saturday night -and in four languages, French, Italian, English and Spanish-, Mathias promises to make “big revelations” about his brother, as well as about his agent, Rafaela. Pimenta, “his lawyer, her friend, her confidante and that today she is called the most powerful woman in soccer and that [son] brother calls his second mother”. These words that remained mysterious will not surprise Paul Pogba’s clan, who will react a few hours later.
• Why did the case take a legal turn?
In a joint statement, the lawyers for ‘Piqueta’, Yeo Moriba (the mother of Paul and Mathias) and Rafaela Pimenta will reveal that Paul Pogba has already been the target of “threats” and “extortion attempts by an organized gang.” And that “the competent authorities of Italy and France were arrested a month ago.” This case between the Pogba brothers has therefore taken a legal turn. On August 3, an investigation was opened in France for “suspected extortion attempts” on the 2018 world champion with the services of the Central Directorate of the Judicial Police (DCPJ). The agency specifies that Paul Pogba would have claimed large sums of money to prevent the dissemination of allegedly compromising videos against him.

• What does Mbappé do in this story?
What if this whole thing had its origins in a dark story… of maraboutage? According to France Info, Mathias Pogba and the blackmailers had threatened to discredit Paul by publishing audio messages in which he had asked a marabout close to his family to put a spell on his France teammate Kylian Mbappe. According to our information, Paul Pogba denied this maraboutage request to investigators.
Mathias will make new strong accusations against his brother on Twitter on Sunday night (“It’s not a question of money: you involved me despite myself, I almost died because of you, you left me in the hole while running away and you want to play the innocent. When everything is said, people will see that there is no more coward, more traitor and more hypocrite than you on this earth”).
Before apostrophizing, again, Mbappé. “Kylian, now do you understand? I have nothing negative against you, my words are for your good, everything is true and proven, the marabout is known! I feel sorry for this brother, a so-called Muslim thoroughly in witchcraft, it’s never good to have a hypocrite and a traitor around you!” While waiting for the ins and outs of the Pogba affair to be clarified, this soap opera only seems to be beginning.
