“I was born in Guinea and grew up there,” the mother of the Pogba brothers, Florentin, Mathias and Paul told FIFA.
“I played a lot of different sports. But eventually, I chose football.’’
“We created a football team. And I was the captain of our women’s team. Maybe this was genetically passed to my children, I don’t know. But my three children have the same passion for football,’’ she said.
Yeo Moriba added that: “The three of them were always together until they got separated. Paul went to Le Havre and the twins went to Spain. One weekend I would go and visit Paul, and the next weekend I’d visit the twins. Every time I left them I would give them this advice: 'You left your country to reach a goal, so do your best to reach this goal.’’
