Pogba could miss the World Cup in Qatar
Paul Pogba (29) absent from the next World Cup? This is a possible scenario, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport on Thursday, three days after the midfielder injured his right knee in training with Juventus Turin.
According to the Italian newspaper, Juve is pushing for the French international to undergo surgery to repair his meniscus injury. This would ultimately deprive him of competition for four months, while the daily initially announced an absence of two or three months.
The World Cup starts in November
A four-month unavailability would deprive La Pioche of the next World Cup to be held in Qatar from November 21 to December 18. It would be a huge blow for the former Mancunian, but also for the coach of the France team Didier Deschamps who made him one of his basic men and knows the importance of the Turinese in the changing room.
For now, Pogba’s decision is not yet known. He could choose not to go through the operation box so as not to sacrifice the World Cup too quickly. Whatever happens, the Habs’ preparation and start to the season are already ruined by this physical glitch. It’s not the best way to start this second visit to Turin, which should have offered him a breath of fresh air after a mixed experience in England.
