Manchester United star Paul Pogba has admitted to that living as a Muslim in Manchester is difficult after the recent terror attack at Ariana Grande’s concert in May that killed 22 people, according to an interview with Esquire magazine.
In the exclusive interview, the world’s most expensive player said, “It’s a very difficult moment but you cannot give up. We can’t let them get in our heads – we have to fight for it.”
“You cannot kill a human being. To kill a human being… it’s something crazy, so I don’t want to put religion on it. This is not Islam and everybody knows that. I won’t be the only one saying that,” the 24-year-old Frenchman said.
As for his father’s passing away in mid-May, he said, “My father was a strong man despite his illness. He tried to fight the disease, but when a person ages, it is difficult for him.”
“I learned from my father a lot, and I feel proud that I am his son. Now that he is gone, I still feel sad about his parting, but I have to enjoy my life because it will end quickly one day.”
