Football. In addition to dealing with her children, who “break her heart”, the mother of the Pogba brothers confides.

From odd jobs to raising children alone to winning the World Cup, the mother of the Pogba brothers, Yeo Moriba, recounts her journey in her autobiography, not shying away from Paul and Mathias’ romance, which “break your heart“, he confided to AFP.

We had to convince him. “They told me to add it, at first I didn’t want to, it was difficult, then the book was already ready. But this episode happened… It’s very hard to talk abouthe sighs. He finally agreed to add an ending “And in the end we win(Fayard), released Wednesday, in which he brings forward the allegations, which led to the jailing of one of his twins, Matthias, on suspicion of extorting money from an organized gang against his younger brother, Paul.

The cover of Yeo Moriba’s autobiography Fayard:

According to Yeo (52), in these cases of blackmail, the elder fell “a trap, it was manipulated, held by people near us. We felt betrayedhe sighs. “They are big, big sharks“, powered by”extreme jealousy“, he lets out. But he particularly wanted to talk about something else in his biography, an idea that his sons (there’s also Florentin, Mathias’ twin), and football in particular.

When I told them that I played football, they told me: But, of course, I played football.

Yeo Moriba

Yeo Moriba describes “a family bound by the same adoration for the round ball to which we owe so much“. In a scene from the book, written with journalist Clemence de Blasius, he bluffs his boys into showing that he’s great with the ball. “When I told them that I played football, they told me: But of course I played football“She’s laughing”I was the captain of my team, at that time the girls were playing for the first time (in Guinea). It blew them away, it’s a very good memory. I played with them oftenin Roissy-en-Brie where they grew up.

Her story is similar to other women who came to France from Africa, as she did at 19, to marry her children’s father, Antoine, an electronics teacher then in his fifties. Pogba’s mother, who also adopted two of her nieces, wanted the book to “send a message we women must fight, not despair because you no longer have a husbandin support. She is separated from Florentine’s father Matthias and Paul, who died in 2017. His story remains.”positive, we must not be alarmed, we must be brave; If you lose courage, you can’t do anything“, he comments.

When he talks about odd jobs, Yeo doesn’t insist on hard times either. Cashier, cleaner,so did the maid“, he adds,It was a weekend, near Ponto-Combo, and there was no bus on weekends, or a very long wait, so I walked. I had to work to take care of my children, I had no other choicehe sums up, spreading his arms. He finally finds a place he likes, in an institution for the disabled, but “I didn’t stay because I had to go and see Paul from time to time, he had already left for Manchester (United, his club in England), I was asking for permissions. I was finally forced to resign“.

The issue of racism

Yeo doesn’t talk about racism. “We have to admit it, we felt a bit of racism, for certain jobs, we saw a preference for native French people over immigrants.“, he sums up. The children themselves were not subjected to it.I really don’t believe it“, he recalls. The apotheosis remains the title of world champion, in 2018, which he celebrates on the lawn with the gold trophy in hand, the photo as a headpiece on the book. “We did not feel that there was so much happiness in the rainhe sums up, a twinkle in his eye. With this wonderful memory in mind, he wants to do justice to himself.”two sonsYeo claims. “The Pogba clan will always be there“, he concludes firmly. “It will always work out, it’s a family, they’re foster brothers, they’ll always hold hands“.
