PAUL POGBA’S older brother Mathias has threatened to reveal “explosive information” that could “affect his sibling’s popularity around the world”.
Mathias, 32, bizarrely targeted his brother – as well as agent Rafaela Pimenta and even Kylian Mbappe – in a video posted to social media
In a rant uploaded online and cited by the Mail, the former Wrexham, Crewe and Patrick Thistle footballer said: “The French, English, Italian and Spanish public, in other words the whole world, as well as my brother’s fans, and even more so the French team and Juventus, my brother’s team-mates and his sponsors deserve to know certain things.
“If he deserves his place in the French team and the honour of playing in the World Cup. If he deserves to be a starter at Juventus.
“If he is a trustworthy person, that any player deserves to have at his side.”
Mathias then ranted about Pimenta – who has taken over as Pogba’s agent since the death of Mino Raiola earlier this year.
In doing so, he questioned “her integrity, her professionalism… her loyalty”.
He then claimed to have “explosive” information about Paris Saint-Germain and France superstar Mbappe.
Mathias Pogba went on: “I will tell you very important things about him and there will be elements and many testimonies to confirm my words.
“Everything could be explosive and make a lot of noise.”

Paul Pogba’s mother and lawyer Yeo Moriba teamed up with Pimenta to launch a response to Mathias’ claims.
They said: “Mathias Pogba’s recent statements on social networks are unfortunately not a surprise.
“They are in addition to threats and organised extortion attempts against Paul Pogba.”
Mathias is without a club after leaving fourth-tier French side Belfort earlier this year.
Following his departure after just eight months, Belfort president Jean-Paul Simon said: “We made a bad choice in signing Mathias Pogba.
“You could say he was the wrong man for the job.”
Mathias was in Russia cheering on his younger brother at the 2018 World Cup four years ago.
