Pogba debunks news quitting International Football

   [ads-post]

Paul Pogba has branded claims he's quit the France national team "fake news".

Reports from the Middle East suggested the Manchester United midfielder was quitting Les Bleus after recent comments from president Emmanuel Macron on Islam and terrorism.

Macron condemned the attack on teacher Samuel Paty, 47, who was stabbed and beheaded on his way home from his high school in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine, around 40 kilometres northwest of Paris.

The French president described the incident as an "Islamic terrorist attack". He also added: "Unity and firmness are the only answers to the monstrosity of Islamist terrorism."

There was no suggestion Pogba supports the terrorists' actions, but Arabic sports website 195.sports.com alleged the midfielder resented Macron's description of it as an "Islamic" terror attack.

Paty, it has been claimed, was targeted for showing cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad to his students.

However, the has dispelled this on Instagram this Monday, stating the reports are "Unacceptable. Fake news."
