Mathias Pogba has released more extraordinary allegations about his brother Paul, claiming the former Manchester United midfielder is putting their family “at risk”.
Mathias, 32, has been charged and jailed over an alleged conspiracy to blackmail the France international.
Four other people were also investigated for racketeering and criminal association after Paul told police the gang had been threatening him since March and demanding £11million.
Mathias continues to insist he is innocent and his lawyer has confirmed the decision to arrest the former Wrexham and Crawley forward will be appealed.
The extraordinary saga began last month when Mathias released a video in which he vowed he would soon make a series of “major revelations” about his brother, including a claim of how Paul used a witch doctor to kill French team-mate Kylian Mbappe enchant.
Although Mathias is now charged and incarcerated, he did it posted another video through a “bot” in which he reveals these “long-awaited revelations”.
He assures that “the masks will fall” and describes Paul, 29, as “a great hypocrite, manipulator and ruse”.
“If you’re reading this message, my bot has completed its automatic sending task,” Mathias said. “It also means that I am no longer free, either from my brother’s henchmen or from the police. This is how the slanderers will have worked to silence me.
“Well, here are some of the long-awaited revelations that I hope will shed new light and help understand why there is such a relentless effort to silence and discredit me, for what I have to say, is not limited to Mbappe. Being famous doesn’t necessarily mean being a good person. No one is above justice.’
Mathias claims the couple’s mother is siding with the world champion against her will.
Following Mathias’ original video, the couple’s mother, Yeo Moriba, along with Paul and his agent Rafaela Pimenta, signed a statement saying the claims were “unfortunately not a surprise.”
“Many will be shocked and have a hard time believing it, but it’s the truth,” continued Mathias. “That is why our family and loved ones are in danger today.
“The problem is that he used those connections and their names to protect himself on the street.
“I was not aware of this until he betrayed his henchmen and fled without telling anyone, abandoning me and making his family and relatives the target of these bandits.
“The only reason we didn’t go to the authorities was fear of reprisals as we couldn’t all protect ourselves.
“I had to blame Paul for his behavior before he deigned to take care of our mother and let others down. Of course, he left her alone without any protection while he was quiet in his fortress behind his bodyguards. Again, this was not free. My mother had to side with him.’
Mathias also reiterated his claims about Paul’s alleged ‘witchcraft’ attack on Mbappe, explaining that the Juventus midfielder struck a ‘magician’.
The 32-year-old claims there was an incident of witchcraft when Pogba’s Manchester United played Mbappe’s PSG in the 2019 Champions League.
“This individual, my brother, has become a devotee of witchcraft in recent years, he has become a devotee of a wizard.
“I spoke of this wizard as someone who worked to isolate my brother. My brother has on several occasions cast a spell on his companions, including prodigy Kylian Mbappe, either out of jealousy or to win a match.
“At Paul’s request, the magician was tasked with neutralizing Kylian Mbappe [when United played PSG]who enjoyed a rapid rise at the time, far superior to the fame of Paul.
“Paul tried his best to get close to Kylian and pretended to be his friend. I called him often, you could see her on the arm. It got to the point that Kylian wanted his next contract with PSG conditional on Paul playing there.
‘And while Paul was working magic behind his back to sabotage those matches. The wizard himself said that he had to stop the witchcraft being performed on Kylian at the risk of ruining his career, knowing he was being paid to do the work.’
The Juventus star, who is currently injured, denies the witch doctor allegation and says it was fabricated to discredit him.
