According to rumors, Pogba took offense to Macron’s comments on Paty’s death and had subsequently decided to call time on his international career.
Paty was attacked as he made his way home from the school he taught at in Conflans-Sainte-Honorine,
having been targeted for showing his students cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad.
After the beheading of 47-year-old teacher Samuel Paty just outside of Paris, Macron issued the following statement:
“Unity and firmness are the only answers to the monstrosity of Islamist terrorism.”
The Manchester United midfielder dismissed the rumors on social medial, posting an image of an article published
by The Sun on Twitter with “unacceptable fake news” emblazoned on the front.
Pogba has won 72 caps for France in total, scoring 10 goals, and played a key role in their run to World Cup glory in Russia in 2018.
