FFF president supports “exemplary” Paul Pogba amid blackmail case

As reported by L’Équipe, FFF president Noël Le Graët is currently lending his support to embattled France national team midfielder Paul Pogba amid reports of attempted blackmail by his brother and their childhood friends, who allegedly tried to extract €13m from the player.

Le Graët messaged the sports daily yesterday, saying:

“This case is in the hands of the police. An investigation is underway. At this point, I won’t make any further comments other than to show my support for Paul Pogba. Paul is a man I hold in high esteem, he’s highly appreciated by the entire Federation. He has always been exemplary for the France team for almost ten years after having shone in all of the youth teams. I hope to see him again very soon, on the pitch and in great shape.”

Pogba’s brother Mathias has claimed that Paul tried to place a “spell” on PSG and France striker Kylian Mbappé via a witch doctor while Paul has listed Mathias as one of those who he says has repeatedly tried to blackmail him.
