Man Utd's Paul Pogba sends furious Instagram post after claims he had quit playing for France

Paul Pogba in action for Man Utd

Reports emerged on Sunday evening that Paul Pogba was going to quit playing for France after comments made by president, Emmanuel Macron.

Macron alleged that Islam was the source of international terrorism.

That led to a report from the Sun, citing Middle Eastern sources, that Pogba was going to quit playing for his national side.

The Man United star has now responded, rubbishing the report and issuing an extraordinary attack against the Sun.

"So The Sun did it again... absolutely 100% unfounded news about me are going around, stating things I have never said or thought," he said on Instagram.

"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 the French National Team to the pot.

"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. 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 in a very serious topic this time, shame on you!"
