Moriba did not appreciate the criticism. “I was shocked! They wrote that I was given a house over there, but that was wrong! I was accused of selling my child!” Moriba said she always encouraged her sons to play football. Paul Pogba was always the most talented but all three were also good table-tennis players. “Theyve always played football, always. I used to have to call then four, five times,” she said. “Id shout from the balcony: Come home! Its time.” Yeo broke out into laughter again, before adding with a more serious tone: “Ive made a lot of sacrifices for my children. “(Football) counted a lot in their education because it calmed them down. My boys were always moving, they moved too much! When they came back from sport they were exhausted.” Now the familys future is secure. Paul Pogba has been linked to huge transfers to Spain and even back to Manchester United, now under Jose Mourinho. Florentin plays for Saint-Etienne in the French top flight while Mathias is at Partick Thistle in Scotland. The twins both play for Guinea, their parents home and where they were born, although they grew up in the Paris suburbs. Moriba keeps a special eye on her youngest son and his image. Paul has made a name for himself almost as much for his extravagant hairstyles as his football ability. “Pauls haircuts, that comes from me, I change mine all the time,” she said in another explosion of satisfied laughter.
