MATHIAS POGBA: Hi, everyone. This is Mathias Pogba. I will announce to you that, soon, I will make great revelation about my brother, Paul Pogba and Rafaela Pimenta, a lawyer, a friend and confidant, the one called today the most powerful woman of football. And called by brother his second mother. For those of you who don't know me, I'm a professional footballer and also a big brother of the world champion, Paul Pogba, currently playing at Juventus, Turin after a disappointing spell at Man United.

I don't think you missed it with the hype surrounding his transfer, and his setbacks due to his injury, and his unforgettable catastrophe documentary. Currently my brother is recovering to be prepared for the future World Cup, which will be played in a short time.

So if I am making this video today, and embarking in this process, it is because I believe the French, Italian, and English public, my brothers fans, and even more, the French National team, the Juventus team, my brother's teammates, and sponsors, deserve to know certain things in order to make an informed decision whether he deserves the admiration, respect, and love of the public, whether he deserves his place in the French national team, and the honor of playing in a World Cup, if he deserves to start at Juventus, if he's a trustful-- trustworthy person that any player would want to have at his side, and, finally, is he worthy of being taken as a representative and model by the youth of the world, and, of course, the big brands.

Also you will learn about Rafaela Pimenta, former business partner of the famous Mino Raiola, will allow you to get an idea of her integrity, her professionalism, her loyalty, and whether she deserves to take over the Mino Raiola team. This will allow you, these players, to know if she deserves to represent them and look after their interest, and for the future of promising future players looking for agent representative for the future contract. Will Rafaela Pimenta really care about them and their families? And are they people who you can trust?

I think what I have to say is likely changes a lot of people. I will also tell you very important things about Kylian Mbappe, the star of the football right now, and there will be elements and many testimonies to corroborate my words. All this will be explosive and make a lot of noise. Also as you-- that you have a lot of questions, that you are wondering the reason of my action, everything will be released in time. So share in mass, comment, stay tuned. See you very, very soon. Ciao.
