Paul Pogba's brother Mathias has sent a new message, claims he 'almost died' because of him

Paul Pogba's brother Mathias is not stopping with his outrageous claims against the Juventus star, stating that he "almost died" because of him.

On Sunday, Mathias, who has played for the likes of Wrexham, Crewe Alexandra and Crawley town, posted a bizarre three-minute video on social media in which he promised to reveal "explosive" information about his younger sibling.

He said that Pogba's team-mates and sponsors "deserve to know certain things".

Later on in the evening, the story took a remarkable twist as it emerged Pogba had told Italian and French authorities that an organised criminal gang involving his brother have blackmailed him for a sum of €13 million.

FranceInfo published the story, which featured some quite sensational and worrying details.

And Mathias, aged 32, has reacted in a Twitter thread by accusing his brother of lying to police and trying to send him to prison.

In addition, he claimed the world will see that there is "nobody more coward, traitorous and hypocritical" than the former Manchester United midfielder.

"What I expected has happened. My little brother is finally starting has shown his true face. He lied to the police and brought out the info, you can’t blame me,” Mathias wrote on Twitter.

“Paul, you wanted to shut me up to lie and send me to prison. I suspected it and now it’s true. My version of the facts happens 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 and I almost died because of you, you left me in the hole while fleeing and you want to pretend you are innocent. When everything is public, people will see that nobody is more coward, traitorous and hypocritical than you on this earth.”

In interviews with investigators, Pogba is believed to have told them he was intimidated by two hooded men carrying assault rifles in a Paris apartment in March and they demanded he hand over €13 million in funds.

The men in question are said to be his childhood friends who believe they are entitled to some of his finances for protecting him.

In January, Pogba cut ties with one individual after discovering he used his credit card to steal €200,000 and kicked him out of his house in Manchester.

The blackmailers are understood to have shown up at Juventus' training ground last month and Pogba, with the help of club lawyers, decided to go to the police.

The gang are alleged to have threatened to invent a fake news story that Pogba requested a Muslim witch doctor cast a spell on teammate Kylian Mbappe - something he strongly denies.

"The recent declarations of Mathias Pogba on social media are unfortunately not a surprise," Pogba said in a statement.They are coming after threats and attempts of extortion by an organised gang against Paul Pogba."

"This has been referred to the appropriate authorities both in Italy and in France a month ago."
