Paul Pogba’s lawyers have responded to older brother Mathias Pogba’s claims that he has big revelations about the Juventus midfielder.
Mathias also claimed he has information on Rafaela Pimenta and Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe.
Paul’s lawyers issued a press release stating (via L’Equipe): “Mathias Pogba’s recent statements on social media unfortunately come as no surprise. They are in addition to threats and extortion attempts organized as a group against Paul Pogba.
“The competent bodies in Italy and France were seized a month ago, and there will be no further comments regarding the ongoing investigation.”
Yesterday, 32-year-old free agent Mathias posted a bizarre video posted in four languages (French, English, Italian and Spanish) on Instagram saying (via GFFN): “I am announcing that I will soon be making big revelations about my brother, Paul Pogba, his lawyer, friend and confidante Rafaela Pimenta, whom Paul calls his second mother as if one wasn’t enough.
“For those who don’t know me, I’m a professional footballer and the big brother of world champion Paul, who joined Juventus after a disappointing spell at Manchester United.
“I’m making this video today because I think the French, the Spanish, the English and the Italians, as well as the fans of my brother, Juventus, the French team, his teammates and his sponsors, deserve to knowing certain things in order to be able to make an informed decision whether he really deserves the respect, admiration and love of the public.
“If he deserves his place in the France team. If he deserves to play the World Cup. If he deserves to start at Juventus, if he is a person worthy of our trust and if he is worthy of being a role model for young people.”
“I will also tell you some very important things about Kylian Mbappe, the star of world football. There will be many witnesses to confirm my words. It could all be explosive and make a huge noise.
It’s not the first time that Pogba’s older brother has meddled in his World Cup-winning brother’s career.
Mathias had previously appeared on Spanish TV show El Chiringuito to talk about transfer activity involving his brother.
Due to unknown circumstances, Paul and his older brother were separated for some time.
