Paul Pogba facing potential four year ban
Paul Pogba has been provisionally suspended for an anti-doping offence.
A test following Juventus’s clash with Udinese showed the France midfielder to have elevated levels of testosterone.
The former World Cup winner is facing a four year ban from the game, pending a trial and testing of the B sample.
The 30 year old only played six Serie A matches for Juve last season after leaving Manchester United as he battled a knee injury, and has featured just twice as a substitute this season.
A statement from Juventus reads:
“Juventus Football Club announces that today, September 11, 2023, the footballer Paul Labile Pogba received a precautionary suspension order from the National Anti-Doping Tribunal following the results of tests carried out on August 20, 2023.
“The club reserves the right to consider the next procedural steps.”
