Having been contacted by RMC Sport on the subject, FFF president Noël Le Graët has reacted to the ongoing situation which sees Paul Pogba embroiled in a feud with his brother Mathias.
“For now we’re at the start of an affair. Nobody has gone to court for the time being, to the best of my knowledge. At this stage it’s only rumours. I love Paul. I hope it doesn’t call into question his place in the France team.”
The affair exploded over the weekend as the latter posted a video online claiming he would be making revelations about his brother, while the Juventus man responded and claimed via his lawyers that he was the victim of attempted organised extortion.
A police investigation was opened, with the authorities in both France and Italy having been called upon a month ago. France Info reported on Sunday night that Paul Pogba was understood to have told investigators he had been trapped by a group of individuals including childhood friends, including two hooded men armed with assault rifles, which Mathias was allegedly part of, asking for €13m from him. Mathias later took to Twitter again to respond to the developments, claiming his brother had called on a witch doctor.
