Pogba slams the Sun with ‘Fake News’ tag after story claiming he had quit the French national team


Rubbish

Paul Pogba has needed to come out and rubbished a report by the Sun that he had quit the French national team. The report claimed that Pogba had not agreed with comments made by French president Emmanuel Macron at the funeral of Samuel Paty.

Paty was murdered on his way home from his job as a junior school teacher.

At his funeral, Macron said, “He was killed precisely because he incarnated the Republic. He was killed because the Islamists want our future.”

“They know that with quiet heroes like him, they will never have it.”

It was alleged that Pogba had been insulted by the remarks of the French leader and the ramifications of which could see him step down from the national side.

They ‘did it again’

However, Pogba took to his Instagram page to rubbish the reports.

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 and my religion 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! #fakenews #AllezLesBleus @emmanuelmacron @equipedefrance

Since, the Sun has released a new article highlighting the Frenchman’s denial of the story. Within, it states the original story had originated from ‘various Middle Eastern news sources.’
