Paul Pogba the midfielder of Manchester United has denied the reports circulating in the media that he has quit French national team after the anti-Islamic comments being made by the French president Emmanuel Macron. Macron declared a war on “Islamist separatism” which according to him is taking over Muslim communities in France.
English newspaper The Sun earlier reported that Pogba has quit the national team after the comments made by Macron and in reply the 27 years old took to Twitter and denied the report by posting a screenshot of the headline with a Fake News sticker on it. The French midfielder wrote, “Unacceptable” He added that The Sun did it again and the news about me leaving the French team is 100% false. He also said that he is against all sorts of terror and violence and it is a pity that some people at press are not acting responsibly when writing the news. This is an abuse to their press freedom as they are not verifying what they are writing. Pogba is also planning to take legal action against the publishers. The false news circulated days after French President Macron paid tribute to a French history teacher who was killed after he used cartoons of Prophet Muhmmad PBUH in a class on freedom of expression.
