In his Paris Saint-Germain press conference before travelling to Nantes on Saturday evening, manager Christophe Galtier revealed that he has not discussed the Pogba witch doctor claims with Kylian Mbappé. As transcribed by Foot Mercato the PSG manager said the following on the situation:
“No I didn’t talk about it with him. Kylian didn’t feel the need to talk about it. He is performing well in matches, happy in training, he is fresh. If it has an impact on his performance? I don’t think so. I don’t know, I haven’t discussed it with Kylian.”
According to RMC, Mbappé called the Pogba brothers on Thursday in order to understand his role in the scandal. The nature of the conversations is not yet known, but Mbappé phoned them in order to gain the perspective of both protagonists and formulate his own ideas.
Amongst a raft of other claims, Mathias Pogba has claimed that his brother Paul used a witch doctor in order to curse Les Bleus teammate Mbappé. According to RMC, Paul has denied this claim to investigators.
The Pogba affair is reportedly the main topic of conversation amongst the France national team squad. Didier Deschamps is also “more than attentive” to what is happening and is informing himself in order to know how to manage the affair.
