France and Manchester United attacking midfielder Paul Pogba has slammed claims that he has hung up his international boots following French President Emmanuel Macron’s comments on radical Islam.
According to reports from different sources in UK, Labile Pogba wanted to call it time on his national team career after Macron announced he would fight the Islamic revolutionary after the October 16 beheading of a history teacher Samuel Paty.
“This is unacceptable, fake news,” Pogba, who is a converted Muslim, said on Facebook with a screenshot of The Sun’s article.
Earlier on, Paty was believed to have shown cartoons of the Prophet Mohamed to his class during a discussion on free speech in a school near Paris, France.
Pogba is a 2018 World Cup winner with France and the Les Bleus is preparing to take on Finland in a friendly encounter on November 11, 2020.
Pogba was in the Manchester United squad that recorded a 0-0 draw against Chelsea, during the English premier League matches played on Saturday at Old Trafford.
