Pogba says he did not quit France team for comments by President Macron on Islam
Manchester United Paul Pogba has stated that he has not quit the French national team.
There were reports that French President Emmanuel Macron made derogatory reports about the Islam religion which Pogba was not happy about.
Pogba has however taken to his Instagram account to state he has not quit the French team.
The 2018 World Cup winner said, “So The Sun did again… absolutely 100% unfounded news about me are going around, stating things I have never said or thought. I am appalled, angry, shocked and frustrated some “media” sources use me to make total fake headlines in the sensible subject of French current events and adding my religion and the French National Team to the pot. I am against any and all forms of terror and violence. My religion is one of peace and love and must be respected.
“Unfortunately, some press people don’t act responsibly when writing the news, abusing their press freedom, not verifying if what they write/reproduce is true, creating a gossip chain without caring it affects people’s lives and my life. I am taking legal action against the publishers and spreaders of these 100% Fake News.
“In a quick shout out to The Sun, who normally could not care less: some of you guys probably went to school and will remember how your teacher said to always check your sources, don’t write without making sure. But hey, seems you did it again and on a very serious topic this time, shame on you!
