Paul Pogba slams reports claiming he quit national team after Macron’s remarks
Manchester United’s star mid-fielder Paul Pogba slams reports claiming that the French guy quit from international football after Emmanuel Macron’s statement on Islam being the main source of international terrorism.
The fake reports were claimed by the famous news website ‘The Sun’ just after the France president’s remarks.
However, the player denied the reports and made a strong statement on twitter that the news is ‘Fake’ and he never told the national team about his exit.
The comments by Macron were made after a French junior high school teacher, Samuel Paty, was beheaded while he was on his way home. After the incident, Macron’s government decided to honour the teacher with French Legion d’honneur, the highest decoration bestowed by the French state.
Macron claimed that the incident was an ‘Islamic terrorist attack’. He later said: “Unity and firmness are the only answers to the monstrosity of Islamist terrorism.”
