Paul Pogba couldn’t have had a worse start to his Juventus adventure. Barely returned to the Bianconeri after a mixed spell of six years at Manchester United, the midfielder suffered a serious meniscus injury. “After complaining of pain in his right knee, Paul Pogba underwent radiological examinations which revealed a lesion of the lateral meniscus. In the next few hours, he will undergo a specialized orthopedic consultation. Therefore, in order to continue his treatment, he is not participating in the trip to Dallas.”
The Old Lady’s medical statement was not reassuring and for good reason. The French must observe several weeks of rest. According to the first estimates, he would be absent about two months. A long absence which even forced the club’s management to review its position on Adrien Rabiot, who had initially been placed on the transfer list. A Frenchman replaces another Frenchman. The scenario could also be repeated in the France team.
Juve are campaigning for an operation
If this two-month convalescence is confirmed, Pogba would be back at the end of September, well in time for the World Cup which takes place from November 21 to December 18 except that The Gazzetta dello Sport reveals this morning some very worrying information for the 2018 world champion. The Turin management is changing its plans. She pushes Paul Pogba to go through the operation box. The recovery time would then be much longer…
The Italian daily speaks of an absence of at least 4 months which would miss the World Cup internationally with 91 selections (11 goals). This would be a huge blow for the Blues of Didier Deschamps. Since his arrival in selection in 2013, the midfielder has been in all campaigns, embodying the leadership of the group. Already in June, he had been forced to forfeit during the international break for a calf injury. Pogba has not worn the blue jersey since March.
