Angry Pogba lashes out at 'fake news'

English Premier League

A livid Paul Pogba has lashed out at the "fake news" that seemingly suggested that the France star had a fallout with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after his red card against Liverpool.  

The midfielder was named as a substitute for the tie on Sunday, before Ole Gunnar Solskjaer brought him on half-time for Mason Greenwood, seemingly in the hope that he could help turn his side's fortunes around with the scoreline 4-0 to the Reds at the time. 

However, the 28-year-old's time on the pitch lasted just 15 minutes he was sent off for a dangerous challenge on Naby Keita in the 60th minute of the clash.

According to a report in The Sun, the France star had apologised to his teammates for the incident in the changing room after the match, but did not say a single word to Solskjaer.  

In response to the aforementioned report, however, Pogba has now taken to social media to speak his truth and branded those claims as "fake news".

"Big lies to make headlines," the France international wrote on Instagram. 

"Tabloid press once again wants to create polemic with 100% fake news. Big lies to make headlines. Journalists who use my name to be seen when there is nothing to see.  

"The only reason I address this is out of respect to my coach, club and fans to send a clear message: the less you read these people the better you are, they have no shame and will say just anything with no basis AT ALL."
