Manchester United star midfielder Paul Pogba has denied reports that he’s quiting the national football team over President Emmanuel Macron’s ‘Islamist terrorism’ statement.

Pogba deny quiting France National Team over fallout with President Emmanuel Macron

The footballing world was shocked earlier this morning when reports of the French

man quiting the national team surfaced online as Pogba’s decision was reportedly

said to have come after President Macron said that ‘monstrosity of Islamist

terrorism’ must be dealt with strongly.

Macron’s comments come against the backdrop of the beheading of Samuel Paty

a school teacher who was killed for showing allegedly communal cartoons

to school children.

According to reports, the 27-year-old World Cup-winning footballer, a practicing

Muslim decided to quit the national side in the wake of widespread outrage over

Macron’s statement.

The Manchester United midfielder have now taken to his official Instagram page

to deny such rumours as he labelled the reports as fake.

Paul Pogba noted how strongly he stand against any form of terror and violence

as he slammed the media house that initiated the reports.

He added that he will be pressing charges against the media house that published the

story as he noted how sad it is to have had such story published about him.
