According to Paul Pogba, his mother would also have been threatened by individuals who are claiming 13 million euros from the midfielder of the Blues and Juventus.
While Paul Pogba had surgery on his right knee on Monday evening, with « an external arthroscopic meniscectomy » which was « perfectly successful » according to Juventus, and his participation in the World Cup in Qatar (November 20-December 18) is now more than compromised, “the Pogba affair” does not stop there. Judicial information has been opened for « extortion with a weapon in an organized gang, kidnapping or kidnapping with release before the seventh day in an organized gang to prepare or facilitate the commission of a crime or an offense and participation in a criminal association in to commit a crime », following a complaint filed in mid-July by the Blues midfielder, who had a second hearing in August. He had revealed that he had indeed used a marabout, not to cast a spell on Kylian Mbappé as his brother Mathias claims, but for a humanitarian association helping children in Africa. An explanation that obviously convinced his teammate in the France team.
A mother under protection
According to France Info, Pogba also said that his mother, Yeo Moriba, has also been pressured by individuals who are demanding 13 million euros from her for protecting her. According to him, they would have come to his mother’s home last July, explaining that they had protected his son for several years, « against people who wanted him badly ». The player’s representative, Rafaela Pimenta, ex-right-hand man of his agent Mino Raiola, then requested protection from the security officer of the Blues, Mohamed Sanhadji, who was also heard by the investigators. While the investigation continues in this affair, Paul Pogba should not return to the pitch before January, according to his coach Massimiliano Allegri, who spoke at a press conference on Monday, on the eve of the clash of the first day of the group stage of the Champions League between PSG and Juventus.
