Official: Pogba to miss World Cup in Qatar


Bad news for the French team. Didier Deschamps can’t hope Paul Pogba in Qatar World Cup which starts on November 20. The French midfielder suffered a new physical setback that prevented him from helping his team defend the title it won in 2018.

Pogba recently rejoined training with Juventus and shortened deadlines to meet Qatar after suffering a knee injury in the summer. However, muscle overload in his right leg will prevent him from being part of the ‘bleu’ expedition.

His representative, Raphaela Pepper, confirmed on ‘telefoot’ that Pogba will not be available to play in the World Cup. “Paul wants to be back as soon as possible, but he has to be patient, work hard in these difficult times and give his best to be back on the field with the team as soon as possible,” he explained.

Correspondingly, the Juventus released a statement following the player’s scans in Pittsburgh.

“In the light of the recent radiological tests conducted at J|Medical and the consultation conducted at pittsburgh by Prof. Volker Musahl for a knee examination, he needs to continue his rehabilitation program”, indication of the ‘bianconero’ team.

Pogba therefore joins the notable absence of N’Golo Kanté, who underwent surgery in October to resolve a muscle injury.
