Atlanta Falcons, Mohamed Sanu, who is also a Muslim, was asked about president Trump’s Muslim ban during media day for Super Bowl LI. The wide receiver told the media that he wants to focus on football right now, but that he is praying that our country and world can be united.
“It’s a very tough situation,” he said. “I just pray that us as a country and a world can be united. It’s really hard for me to talk about this right now. It would take a lot of time. I would really like to just focus on the game and just talk about football.”
“I’m not really here to talk about that. I’m here to focus on the game. At another time, maybe. But not right now.”
“I’m not really here to talk about my religious beliefs. I’m here to play football.”
