TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Paul Pogba has reportedly retired from France international team football after controversial comments made by the nation's president Emmanuel Macron about Islam.
The Manchester United star has reportedly made the decision following the remarks on Friday from his country’s leader.
The French government’s decision to honor the teacher who published offensive images of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is said to be behind the move.
Pogba considered the decision an insult to French Muslims, especially since Islam is the second religion in France after Christianity.
