Paul Pogba, the Football Star is taking legal action against the Sun, a UK based newspaper wrote which he termed as fake news that he is leaving the French National team.

Via his Instagram, Pogba dispelled the news that he is leaving French National team, “I am taking legal action against the publishers and spreaders of these 100% Fake News”

He added, “ 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.”

The football star who has been in press on so many occasions and most of them controversial said he was disappointed on such a big publishing house publishing news tarnishing his reputation even when France is yet to recover from the act of terrorism where Samuel Paty, a teacher was beheaded by an Islamic extremist. 

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

He then said he has nothing to do with terrorists and asked, “some press people” to act responsibly when writing the news.


“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.” He said.


Different media personalities as Progba said, surely use their freedom of press to condemn, to insult or to make fun of others without thinking about the consequences that might appear later.

“ 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!”
