After six disappointing years at Manchester United, made more complicated by injuries, Paul Pogba returned to Juventus to relaunch. However, his knee complicates his debut with the Bianconeri and gives a good scare to the Turin staff.
Central element of a documentary on Amazon Prime entitled The Pogmentary, Paul Pogba has been more talked about for his activities off the pitch than on the meadow lately. It must be said that the player saw his last season at Manchester United disrupted by physical problems, depriving him of many matches with the Red Devils. Many hope that finding Juventus Turin this summer will allow them to regain their cruising speed. It was in this same club that Pogba exploded against Europe a few years ago, showing qualities and potential rarely seen.
Pogba hit in the knee but more scared than hurt
However, the air of Piedmont or rather the United States where Juventus is currently located has had no impact on the trajectory of the French player. Indeed, barely arrived in Los Angeles, Pogba felt pain in his knee during the Turinese’s first training session. Panic has won the bianconeri ranks but fortunately, according to the media SportMediasetit was only an alert without consequence for the middle of the French team.

Much to Massimiliano Allegri’s relief, Paul Pogba didn’t suffer any damage to his knee. He resumed physical work at the hotel and at the swimming pool. However, he has not yet resumed collective training, contenting himself with coming to observe his teammates at the edge of the field. Paul Pogba has already forfeited the friendly match against FC Barcelona, scheduled for the night of Tuesday to Wednesday. A first absence which, we hope for the player, does not call for others. A wish also shared by Allegri, Juventus but also Didier Deschamps as the World Cup in Qatar begins in less than four months.
