Paul Pogba’s brother among suspects involved in £11 million blackmail of Juventus star
Paul Pogba's brother Mathias has been implicated in a £ 11 million blackmail plot to have embarrassing videos of his brother released. Mathias plays a midfielder for Juventus.

Paul had earlier informed French authorities of a gang's claimed plan to extort a sizable quantity of money after they dragged him to his Paris apartment and allegedly threatened him with assault rifles.

The former United player alleged that the guys sought protection money in exchange for services provided during and after his time at Old Trafford.

The incident happened after Mathias appeared in a film that was published in four different languages and threatened to reveal shocking information about the Juventus player.


In a brief statement signed by Pauls’s mother, Yeo Moriba, and the family lawyer expressed disappointment in the social media video confirming prior extortion attempts by Mathias.

“Unfortunately, Mathias Pogba’s recent social media posts come as no surprise and follow other attempts over a prolonged period of time to try to extort money from Paul Pogba,” it read.

“The facts have been reported to the Italian and French police a month ago and there will be no further comment on the ongoing investigations.

“Paul Pogba’s lawyers, Yeo Moriba (mother of Mathias and Paul) and Rafaela Pimenta.”

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.

However, Mathais would go on to deny these claims on his Twitter handle in a series of tweets and accusing Paul of being a “hypocrite” and involved in “witchcraft”
Pogba was named to the 2015 UEFA Team of the Year and the 2015 FIFA FIFPro World XI after helping Juventus to the 2015 UEFA Champions League Final, their first in 12 years.

He also won the 2018 FIFA World Cup, scoring in the final.
