Pogba in shock France retirement?

Paul Pogba has reportedly retired from France international team football after racist comments made by the nation’s president .

It’s been suggested in Middle Eastern media that Pogba came to the decision after the shocking comments made by Macron on Friday as well as the government recent honouring of a teacher who mocked the prophet, Muhammad.

The dramatic chain of events for the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner comes after the beheading of a school teacher Samuel Paty, which Macron described as an ‘Islamic terrorist attack’.
