Paul Pogba’s brother, Mathias Pogba, has been denied the opportunity to join German minnows Uerdingen due to issues regarding his weight.
Mathias Pogba, the older brother of Manchester United’s record signing, has been rejected by the German third-tier side for being too heavy.
The 27-year-old, who plays as a forward, has been told that his services will not be required at Uerdingen for the season ahead.
The club who rejected the player were only promoted to the German third tier and have won three games in four matches already this season.
The 27-year-old is a forward but stands a huge 6’4, meaning that he’s a brilliant target man.
The Guinea international was most recently contracted to Sparta Rotterdam and had been training with Uerdingen in their preseason preparations but remains without a club after being told that he is not quite in the requisite condition.
“He’s been and gone. Mathias couldn’t help the team, he is currently not in good physical shape,” Uerdingen coach Stefan Kraemer told German outlet Bild.
