New Pogba injury troubles Juventus and France

There are reports Paul Pogba has sustained a muscular injury in training as he tries to recover from knee surgery, so the Juventus midfielder is increasingly unlikely to make the France squad for the World Cup.

The former Manchester United man has not yet made a competitive appearance for the Bianconeri since returning to Turin as a free agent over the summer.

He tore the meniscus in his knee during pre-season training in the United States back in July and tried conservative therapy, which did not work, until he eventually had to accept going under the knife was the only feasible option.

Pogba has been back in training in Turin and working towards a full recovery so he could play for Juventus in 2022, but also to be ready for the World Cup, which kicks off on November 20.

However, La Gazzetta dello Sport claim that Pogba has been diagnosed with a thigh injury caused by the long period off the field and will have to stay out for another 10 days.

It is very difficult now for France to consider risking Pogba as part of their squad for the tournament in Qatar.

  1. I have bad feeling that it is highly likely Pogba will retire. I don’t think he has the grit, and determination to work his way back.
