French football is going through a difficult time with the outbreak of a sordid news about Paul Pogba. RMC Sport makes presentations with several members of the French community entourage whose names have appeared from near or far in this matter.
Paul Pogba, the star of the France team
Over the years, Paul Pogba has become part of Didier Deschamps’ group on the France team. The 2018 world champion, on loan to Juventus since July 11, is going through a very difficult time. Since March, Paul Pogba has been on a roller coaster: between a robbery at his Manchester home on March 15, injuries at the end of the season and his new knee problem at the end of July. Some relatives of the family say that Paul had been feuding with his brothers for several months.
In addition to the March period, what we know today after the player’s statements to the investigators is that on July 14 three people will visit Pogba at the Juventus training center. A security guard will notify the player. The midfielder will say that he does not want to see the people of him. Two days later, Paul Pogba decides to file a complaint. With this allegation, the case takes a legal turn before becoming mediatic with the first words of his brother last Saturday.
Mathias Pogba, Paul’s older brother
It is with his video published on Saturday night, and translated into four languages, that the Pogba affair will break out in public. Mathias Pogba, 32, Paul’s older brother and Florentin’s twin, is an important man in the “Pogba clan”. Although his football career never really took off, unlike his twin brother Florentin, the man will go into business and media. He does not hesitate to speak in the newspapers to give indications about the future clubs of his little brother.
He will make television appearances in Spain and France. Mathias Pogba is also associated with various brands. The former player of Tours will also create his “Golden Score” association, in order to help athletes in their retraining. In four days, with the videos of him, the man will bring the case to light. At the moment, he has not been heard by investigators.
Yeo Moriba, the clan leader
She is the leader of the “Pogba clan”. Yeo Moriba, the mother of the brothers, is “the leader of the gang, the one who leads everything, the one who says yes, the one who says no”, explains the president of Tours, Jean-Marc Ettori, in Le Figaro . She was heard as a witness in this case. According to Le Parisien, she would have testified in favor of Paul Pogba.
In 2019, the mother of the Juventus midfielder, a former player for the Guinean women’s team, was even appointed ambassador of women’s football by the Guinean Football Federation (Feguifoot).
Maria Zulay, Pablo’s wife
Some relatives of the Pogba family admit that she “wanted to clean up” around the world champion. This model of Bolivian origin has been in a relationship with Paul Pogba since 2017. The first time the general public discovered her face was in 2018 during the World Cup in Russia.
“She has a very big influence on Paul Pogba,” says a relative. Maria and Paul have two sons, Labile Shakur and Keyaan Zaahid. She is very active on social media. Since the beginning of the adventure, she has remained silent.
Rafaela Pimenta, Pablo’s lawyer
He is the new very influential person in Paul Pogba’s environment. Since the death, at the end of April, of Mino Raiola, the historical agent of Paul Pogba, it is she who has become the queens of business. She was already present in the past in the entourage of the world champion but Mino Raiola had kept the direction of the business.
Mentioned in Mathias Pogba’s video as “the most influential woman in football in the world”, Rafaela Pimenta remains unknown to the general public. In the world of soccer, she represents Erling Haaland, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marco Verratti. The lawyer was also interviewed by OCLCO services at the beginning of the investigation. Paul Pogba considers Rafaela as a second mother. Viewers of “The Pogmentary” series on Amazon Prime will have noticed how close she is to the player.
Mohamed Sanhadji, head of security for the France national team
He has been the strong man of the France group since 2004. He is unknown to the general public, but represents an essential position within the France team. Police Officer Mohamed Sanhadji makes himself available to the FFF as Security and Safety Liaison Officer.
He was interviewed during the month of August by investigators as a witness. According to Le Parisien, the man had been aware of this case involving Paul Pogba for several weeks, so he advised him to speak to the police.
