Manchester United and France midfielder Paul Pogba says he will take legal action after “overall fake” reports stated he was to quit international football.
Pogba, 27, was reported to be quitting the France national team over remarks made by the nation’s president, Emmanuel Macron, about Islam.
World Cup winner Pogba, who is Muslim, has 10 objectives and 72 caps for France.
” Absolutely 100%unfounded news about me are going around, stating things I have actually never stated or thought,” he stated.
Composing on Instagram, he said he was “appalled, angry, shocked and disappointed” at some media “utilizing him to make overall phony headlines” and “including the French nationwide group and my religious beliefs to the pot”.
He added: “I am against any and all kinds of fear and violence. Unfortunately, some press people do not act properly when composing the news, abusing their press freedom, not confirming if what they write/reproduce holds true, creating a chatter chain without caring it impacts people’s lives and my life.
” I am taking legal action against the publishers and spreaders of these 100%Phony News.”
