Paul Pogba Set to Sue The Sun for Publishing Fake News About Him
Manchester United and France midfielder Paul Pogba says he will take legal action against the media house who reported fake news about him saying he has retired from international football after France president gave the teacher who was beheaded an award. The president said it is an Islamic attack. The 27-year-old Manchester United playmaker was reported to be quitting the France national team over comments made by the country’s president, Emmanuel Macron, about Islam.
The Muslim World Cup winner Paul Pogba has so far scored 10 goals and made 72 caps for the France national team. Paul Pogba said: “Absolutely 100% unfounded news about me are going around, stating things I have never said or thought.” Writing on his Instagram he said: “appalled, angry, shocked and frustrated” at some media “using him to make total fake headlines” and “adding the French national team and my religion to the pot”.
He added: “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.”
The first media house who first published the fake news is The Sun and so the media house might just be in for trouble from the former Juventus man.
