Macron’s anti-Islam statement, star footballer’s representation of France
The famous Manchester United footballer refused to represent France over French President Emmanuel Macron’s anti-Islam remarks.
According to several foreign media reports, Manchester United’s star footballer Paul Pogba’s decision not to represent France at the international level came after French President Macron’s statement on patronage of blasphemous sketches in honor of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ.
A report published on an Arab website states that Paul Pogba’s decision not to play for France was made by President Macron to a teacher who was killed by a Muslim man for showing blasphemous sketches to students. What happened after receiving the highest honor?
However, the French Football Association and Paul Pogba have not yet commented.
Paul Pogba, who made his international debut in 2013, was also part of the French team that won the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
