Following the incident organizers of Euro 2020 said that, "Muslim players will no longer need to display alcohol related brands at press conferences."
According to The Telegraph Sport, the organizers of Euro 2020 will not require Muslim footballers to display bottles of alcohol-free beer during news conferences.
According to the Daily Telegraph, European Football Association (UEFA) officials are asking the team whether players and coaches attending the press conference will be willing to sit beside any alcoholic brand for religious reasons.
The incident came up after Cristiano Ronaldo removed Coca-Cola drinks display in from of him earlier this week at a post match press conference.
Heineken opposed the decision, saying that the product does not contain alcohol and should not be a problem for abstainers.
In the wake of Pogba snub, Heineken said, "Heineken is far from promoting alcohol consumption, but it helps consumers reduce their alcohol consumption, allowing them to substitute delicious non-alcoholic beer when it suits them, giving our consumers more options.
