French International Paul Pogba To miss The World Cup With Injury

254

Juventus star Paul Pogba will miss the World Cup due to a serious thigh injury.

It is thought the 29-year-old sustained a new thigh injury while undergoing rehabilitation on an existing knee problem that has meant he has not played a competitive game for Juventus since re-signing for the club this summer.

Juve manager Massimiliano Allegri had already said on Friday that it was “very unlikely” that the 29-year-old midfielder would play for his team before Serie A breaks up for the World Cup.

Italian media reported earlier on Monday that Pogba could be out for around 15 days with the thigh injury.

“Following yesterday and today’s medical review in Torino and Pittsburgh, it is extremely painful to inform [you that] Paul Pogba will still need recovery time from his surgery,” his agent Rafaela Pimenta said.

“For this reason, Paul will not be able to join the Juventus squad before the World Cup break nor the French national team in Qatar. If wishful thinking would change things, Paul would be playing tomorrow.”
