Relief for Juventus… and Didier Deschamps. Injured in the right knee, Paul Pogba will not ultimately be operated on, the Turin club announced to AFP on Tuesday August 2. The French will still miss the resumption of Serie A and will be absent for around five weeks.

It is nevertheless a lesser evil for the midfielder. An operation could have kept him away from the field for several months and would have seriously compromised his participation in the World Cup, from November 21. The French world champion, who returned to Juve this summer after six years at Manchester United, will submit to a « conservative therapy for five weeks“, told AFP a spokesman for the Italian club.

The 29-year-old international injured himself in training ten days ago during the Bianconeri’s United States tour. Victim of a « lateral meniscus lesion » right knee, according to the diagnosis released by his club, La Pioche took the advice of several specialists on possible treatments and in particular on the need or not for surgery.

Paul Pogba met this Tuesday in Lyon a renowned specialist, who recently operated on Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The deadline advanced for his care seems to allow a return to the field from mid-September.
