Mathias Pogba accuses brother Paul of LYING about £11m extortion – accusing him of ‘WITCHCRAFT’

0 153

Mathias Pogba has hit back at his ‘money-grabbing’ brother Paul, accusing him of ‘witchcraft’ and putting the family in danger – before claiming reports about an £11million extortion are false.

Franceinfo news outlet, which has seen police files on the case, said on Tuesday that Paul was initially told to hand over £13m (€11m) by the armed men, who were wearing hoods, and branding MI6 assault rifles. 

This was ‘protection money’ covering €1m (£860,000) a year, from the age of 16 when he first became a professional footballer, according to the enquiry source. 

But in a ferocious response to the latest updates on the case, brother Mathias has called out Pogba’s ‘witchcraft’ and claims ‘because of fame and money’ his brother ‘has long since lost his notion of reality’.

‘All of Paul’s statements, from the hearing at the start of August – before my videos – to the response from his lawyers and the responses, from his supporters, are only intended to drag my name through the mud,’ Mathias Pogba said in his latest TikTok video. 

‘So I’m asking myself: why rush to affirm that what I had to say concerned just witchcraft?

‘Because it would be difficult to talk about the so-called blackmail in this case? So wouldn’t it be better to hammer home that the big brother is just a jealous, money-grabbing person, ready to do anything to discredit before he speaks? Isn’t that what all false accounts in my name are all about? No, we don’t accept conspiracies here!’ 

Paul Pogba denies all allegations of witchcraft, with one claim in this case that he had asked a witch doctor to cast a spell on Paris Saint-Germain superstar and French team-mate Kylian Mbappe. 

Mathias, however, has continued to double down. 

‘The only path to survival that I have is to unveil his lies and his deception,’ he continues. 

‘That’s why I confirmed his witchcraft because what matters here is not whether it works or whether you believe me or not, it is that it is malicious because these practices expect that you do bad things for their rituals with the will to harm.’

Pogba claims two armed men said they ‘protected him discreetly’ during a period that spanned more than a decade, including during two spells at Manchester United, the last of which ended earlier this year.

Reports from French news outlet RMC claim that Pogba paid around £85,000 in a bid to ‘save time’ and ‘satisfy the extortionists’ but his attempts saw those plotting against him demand the £11m again. 

‘In his dedication to discredit all those who know his little secrets, Paul claims that the money that he offered to his childhood friends was extorted, easy to say to the media, but what if this money is justified by official, saved documents, and if there is proof of an agreed action!? That’s not the same, is it?’ Mathias claims in his latest video.

‘In any case, I am happy to be supported in this ordeal and I am very grateful to my big brothers and those who have believed in me. 

‘To finish, just be a bit patient, the unveiling of the lies and my own version of the facts is coming!!!’

A statement signed by his lawyers, his mother Yeo Moriba and current agent Rafaela Pimenta, earlier in the week – and prior to Mathias’ most recent video – said that the videos ‘are unfortunately no surprise’ and were in addition to other ‘threats and extortion attempts’. 

Judicial sources in Paris confirmed on Sunday that an investigation for ‘attempted extortion in an organised gang’ has been opened. On Sunday night a source close to the case told the Franceinfo news outlet that Pogba’s ‘big brother and childhood friends’ are all named as suspects.

On Sunday night, Mathias – who had spells in English football at Wrexham, Crewe and Crawley Town – denied the claims from his better-known sibling in a furious Twitter outburst.

How the son of Guinean parents became Manchester United’s record signer, getting £89.3million in 2016, and was awarded the Legion of Honour

Paul Pogba was born and raised in Lagny-sur-Marne to Guinean parents along with two brothers – Mathias and Florentin, both of whom also play football professionally. 

The primarily central midfielder told FIFA.com, that former Brazilian forward Ronaldo ‘made him fall in love with football’. 

He said: ‘I was enthralled by him as I used to play up front when I was younger.’

At just 16, Manchester United snapped him up before he went to Juventus on a free transfer in 2012, winning a Serie A, a Coppa Italia and two Supercoppa Italiana titles. 

His star rose further and he won various acolades including the Legion of Honour, FIFA World Cup Best Young Player and Golden Boy. 

He returned to Manchester in 2016 for a record £89.3 million, which was the highest fee paid by any English club until 2021. Pogba would go on to help United win the League Cup and Europa League in 2017. 

In 2019, he married his wife Bolivian model, Maria Zulay Salaues, who he has two children with.

And would return to play with Juventus this year.

He wrote: ‘Paul, you really wanted to shut me up completely to lie and send me to prison, I suspected it now it’s true, my version of the facts happens and unlike you.’ 

Mathias has since expanded his thoughts out in a two-minute, 20-second video.  

On Sunday night, a judicial source added: ‘During various hearings, Paul Pogba was able to confide in investigators from the Central Office of Judicial Police Combating Organised Crime that he was trapped by childhood friends, and two hooded men armed with assault rifles.’ 

Pogba said the gang wanted €13m – the equivalent of £11m – and had been threatening him for four months.

Acts of intimidation were carried out in Manchester in April, and later around the Italian city of Turin, where Pogba currently plays for Juventus.

The gang is also said to have taken Pogba to flat in the Paris suburb of Lagny-sur-Marne, where Pogba grew up, at the end of March. 

There, the gang members accused Pogba of not helping them financially since he became a professional player.

During police interviews, Paul Pogba said he had always been close to his childhood friends and helped them out financially when he could.

But in January he kicked one out his house in Manchester after discovering that the unidentified man had used Pogba’s credit card to steal €200,000 – the equivalent of £170,000.

Paul Pogba was born and raised in Lagny-sur-Marne along with two brothers – Mathias and Florentin, both of whom also play football professionally. 

Paul Pogba is set to defend the World Cup he won with France in 2018 at the upcoming tournament in Qatar.

He re-joined the Serie A giants on a free transfer after his Manchester United contract expired earlier this summer.

He first arrived at Old Trafford from Le Havre as a 16-year-old in 2009 before being allowed to leave United on a free transfer and join Juventus in 2012. 

He is expected to return to action next month. Pogba is married to the Bolivian model, Maria Zulay Salaues, and they have two children together.

THE LATEST MATHIAS POGBA STATEMENT IN FULL

‘Hello everyone, what a crazy start to the week! I have to say, lots of people and media have decided that Paul’s words are the ultimate truth without needing to verify because it’s a star who said them and so the person who didn’t have such a career should just shut up. 

‘Yes, I know some mock the truth because of their fanaticism towards the Great Paul Pogba, and for others, there is only the World Cup that matters. Many would have just shut their eyes if Michael (Jackson), MJ, had given us another Billie Jean.

‘Honestly, I can’t do anything about willful blinding. So I am addressing myself to those who want to truly understand. I remind you as well that at the beginning, I only said that I was going to release things, but in the end, I didn’t reveal anything. 

‘It’s the little Paul, panicked and poorly advised who sent in his black-robed soldiers. It is he who began to reveal things about himself and in a guided and arranged way and all I have done since is responded.

‘Because all of Paul’s statements, from the hearing at the start of August – before my videos – to the response from his lawyers and the responses, from his supporters, are only intended to drag my name through the mud. So I’m asking myself: why rush to affirm that what I had to say concerned just witchcraft?

‘Because it would be difficult to talk about the so-called blackmail in this case? So wouldn’t it be better to better to hurry to hammer home that the big brother is just a jealous, money-grabbing person, ready to do anything to discredit him before he speaks? Isn’t that what all false accounts in my name are all about? No, we don’t accept conspiracies here! 

‘The public is getting annoyed and calling treason without knowing anything. If the big brother was obliged to express himself publicly because he risks losing his life or his liberty because of the fact that his little brother, wants him either dead or in prison, isn’t it then the little brother (Paul), who has betrayed?

‘Or is it less serious because he is a world star, and me a normal person, and all those like me, should accept death in silence for the glory of the unjust prodigy!? 

‘Of course, some would like that, but sorry, I don’t agree. Be like that if you like! Even if you don’t believe it, I’m fighting for my life and that of my family to escape the control and the trap of this brother. The world is based on appearances, thinking that everything is beautiful at our place, but the reality is that there is a suffering family in danger. That’s because of my brother, who because of fame and money has long since lost his notion of reality. People talk about getting your house in order but if the brother doesn’t want to speak and persists in destroying the family, what choice is left?

‘As a result, the only path to survival that I have is to unveil his lies and his deception. That’s why I confirmed his witchcraft because what matters here is not whether it works or whether you believe me or not, it is that it is malicious because these practices expect that you do bad things for their rituals with the will to harm. Also, I ask, didn’t Paul deny resorting to witch doctors? Then why did he reveal that to the investigator: ‘Pogba admitted to police to having paid a witch doctor in his entourage to protect himself from injuries’ (source: Franceinfo [sic]).’

‘Does protecting yourself from injuries require paying millions of euros to this witch for years? (especially since it didn’t work). And the investigators and the tax authorities will be able to easily verify that with the Central Bank of London. 

‘Also, in his dedication to discredit all those who know his little secrets, Paul claims that the money that he offered to his childhood friends was extorted, easy to say to the media, but what if this money is justified by official, saved documents, and if there is proof of an agreed action!? That’s not the same, is it? 

‘In any case, I am happy to be supported in this ordeal and I am very grateful to my big brothers and those who have believed in me. To finish, just be a bit patient, the unveiling of the lies and my own version of the facts is coming!!!’
