Mathias Pogba said he would ‘release the truth’

Paul Pogba has released a statement referring to “extortion” after his brother recorded a video promising “great revelations” about the Juventus player.

Mathias, who has played in the lower level of English football, has recently joined the social media platform and has already caused a stir by claiming the information he has against his sibling could turn people against him.

“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.”

The former Wrexham defender continued by then mentioning his brother’s agent, Rafaela Pimenta, who has taken over the handling of the Frenchman’s career following the death of Mino Raiola in April.

Pogba said that he would let fans and players know about her “integrity” and “professionalism” and if she “deserves to represent them.”

A statement signed by 29-year-old former Manchester United forward Paul, as well as his mother Yeo Moriba and Mr Pimenta, has been sent out following the video.

It stated that the videos “are unfortunately no surprise”, adding: “They are in addition to threats and extortion attempts by an organised gang against Paul Pogba.

“The competent bodies in Italy and France were informed a month ago and there will be no further comments in relation to the ongoing investigation.”
