Manchester United football star, Paul Pogba has denied reports suggesting that he has retired from playing for his country, France as a result of comments against Muslims made by the President of France, Emmanuel Macron.
According to him, the reports are false and he has no intention of retiring or even thought of retiring from playing for his country.
The footballer said he’s now tired with the fake news written about him and says he will sue the Sun newspaper in order to serve as a deterrent to other media outlets.
Pogba who addressed this in post on social media said “So The Sun did it 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 the French National Team to the pot.
I am against any and all forms of terror and violence. 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 in a very serious topic this time, shame on you!”
