More than a week after the revelation of the Pogba affair, Kylian Mbappé, whose name was linked to the scandal, spoke publicly. It was during the pre-match press conference (Juventus-PSG) organized at the Parc des Princes on Monday that the player was able to express his feelings about this dark story. As a reminder, from Saturday August 27, Mathias Pogba, footballer and older brother of Paul Pogba, began posting strange messages on his Twitter account, announcing that he was about to make heavy revelations about his brother. Shortly after, the latter assured that Paul Pogba had called on a marabout to cast a spell on his teammate, Kylian Mbappé. A serious accusation that the principal concerned refuted with the investigators, but which all the same pushed Kylian Mbappé to want to know more. Thus, the media revealed on Thursday September 1 that number 7 had spoken separately with the two brothers in order to have their version of the story.
Kylian Mbappé: “I trust my teammate”
At the end of these exchanges, Kylian Mbappé would have chosen which side to side with, judging by his remarks on Monday. “Today, I prefer to trust the word of a teammate”, explained the player before adding: “He called me, gave me his version of the facts. As I speak , it’s his word against his brother’s. In the interest of the selection, we have a great competition coming up, I trust my teammate. This is not the time to add more to him. I’m pretty detached from it all.” Tuesday September 6 for the Juventus – PSG match, Kylian Mbappé and Paul Pogba will meet together for the first time in public since the start of the affair!
