France will play in the Qatar World Cup on a mission to retain the title. But before that, the current champions suffered a big blow. French midfielder Paul Pogba has suffered a knee injury. His World Cup performance is also uncertain.
A few days ago, Pogba repeated history by moving from Manchester United to Juventus. It was hoped that the preparations for the old women of Turin would be completed before the World Cup. Then flowers will bloom in the desert. However, his participation in the World Cup has become uncertain due to a knee injury.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Pogba will be out for at least two months. However, according to the latest update on Thursday (July 28), the wait is about to get longer. Maybe the French midfielder will not play this year. And if that happens, Pogba is definitely going to miss the World Cup.
Juventus wants to go the surgery route to recover the best star, and in the end, Pogba has to be out of the field for at least four months. Meanwhile, Qatar World Cup starts in November this year.
The Serie A club first announced the 29-year-old’s injury in a statement on Monday (July 25). He could not play in the friendly match against Barcelona due to injury.
Paul Pogba, one of the best talents from the English club’s academy, joined the Old Ladies of Turin for the first time after leaving Manchester United in 2012. He left Old Trafford and went to the Allianz Stadium mainly for game time. Then in four years it blossomed from a bud to a flower. Established himself as one of the best midfielders of all time. Manchester United were desperate to bring him back to Old Trafford, regretting the loss of talent.
The Frenchman finally returned to Old Trafford in 2016 for a transfer fee of 89 million pounds. It started well there. He made a big contribution to the team’s Europa League victory in the first season. But with time, this World Cup winner lost himself in the club. Juventus and France could not show even a drop of skill for the English giants.
It was confirmed at the beginning of the 2021-22 season that he will not be in the Red Devils camp this season. At the end of the contract period, he informed the club that he will not sign a new contract. Since then, there has been speculation as to where his next destination will be. Real Madrid once tried to bring him to the team. Barcelona was also interested. But Pogba’s relationship with Juventus is special, so it has already been confirmed that the next destination is the Italian team. All that was left was formalities. After completing the medical and formalities, the Italian club announced the contract of Pogba in the second week of this July.
