Mathias Pogba's social media

Mathias Pogba has both Instagram and Twitter social media handles. The current reactions to the allegations against his brother can be found in his social media posts.

The suspicions that Mathias was a significant player in the attempted €13 million blackmail of the Juventus midfielder prompted him to respond on social media. Mathias alleged in an inflammatory social media post that his brother was attempting to manipulate the story about the incident.

He said (via Get Football News France):

“Hahahaha, what I expected to happen has happened: my little brother is finally starting to show his true face. Since it was he who started talking, to lie to the police and who brought out the information, you can’t blame me. Paul, you really wanted to shut me up completely to lie and send me to prison, I suspected it. Now it’s true, my version of the facts actually happened and unlike you, I have enough to prove my words and your lies.
“I’ll tell you again: brother, manipulating people is not good! It’s not about money: You implicated me in spite of myself, I almost died because of you, you left me in a hole and you want to play the innocent one. When everything is said people will see that there is no bigger coward, bigger traitor and bigger hypocrite than you on this earth.”

Because there is no information about his father, Mathias Pogba's biography omits him. He has participated in several clubs in France, Italy, and the Netherlands. He appears to be retiring from football in the upcoming years due to his advanced age.
