Pogba denies quitting France national team
French midfielder and Manchester United’s star Paul Pogba has denied media reports that said he quit the France national team over comments made by Emmanuel Macron
“So The Sun did again... absolutely 100% unfounded news about me are going around, stating things I have never said or thought,” Pogba said in a statement on his Facebook page.
He went on to say: “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.”
He said that he was against any and all forms of terror and violence and added: “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.”
He concluded his statement as follows: “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 in a very serious topic this time, shame on you!” (ILKHA)
