SCO d’Angers: the Pogba affair at the origin of the investigation targeting the club

On Tuesday, the premises of the SCO training center in Angers were raided by the judicial police. The club’s communications director, Mohamed Sifaoui, explained in Ouest-France why. “This is a major investigation, which concerns several dozen people. These are stories of transfer, players’ agents, real or self-proclaimed. A number of people are said to have been guilty of financial embezzlement. Two people passed by the club are prosecuted, but presumed innocent. The former legal director of the club (Valentin Harribey, laid off in November) would be involved, in a personal capacity, in this investigation but I do not know more. A person from our recruitment unit (Jalal Benalla), who resigned even before the end of his probationary period on December 1 for personal reasons, is also concerned. »

“It is an investigation that was launched following facts that date back to 2017. The Pogba affair was the trigger. Several clubs have been searched since the start of the investigation. Of the 47 people the police are investigating, we are in contact with only two. Maybe the club failed to communicate. Me, I’m here to say things, especially when you have nothing to be ashamed of. It is a mountain giving birth to a mouse. We have nothing to reproach ourselves for, we tell you straight in the eye. »

Meanwhile, transfer journalist Ignazio Genuardi claimed that Azzedine Ounahi was still a long way from signing for Napoli: « At the moment there is no confirmation regarding a possible agreement for the transfer of the ‘Angevin Ounahi to Napoli (who would loan him directly to the SCO). As previously reported, President De Laurentiis’ club have offered €15m + bonuses. Insufficient ».
