Manchester United midfielder, Paul Pogba has lashed out at UK media, Sun Newspaper for publishing what he described as fake news.

The UK media had reported that the midfielder has quit the France national team, Les Blues over President Emmanuel Macron’s comment on Islamic terrorism.

Macron had earlier this month declared war on “Islamist separatism”, which he believes is taking over some Muslim communities in France.

The President’s comment was on the heel of the murder of a French history teacher, Samuel Paty for using cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad in a class on freedom of expression for 13-year-olds.

Pogba in his reaction to the news on his social media page superimposed a fake news sticker on it and lashed out at the media organization.

In his statement, he denied ever saying such while stating that using his religion on such a sensitive issue leaves him shocked and frustrated.

“So The Sun did 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 my religion and the French National Team to the pot.

“I am against any and all forms of terror and violence. My religion is one of peace and love and must be respected. 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 on a very serious topic this time, shame on you! #fakenews #liars #AllezLesBleus @emmanuelmacron @equipedefrance
