Paul Pogba ruled out from the World Cup in Qatar
Juventus' star will only be able to return to the pitch in early 2023, after the Qatar World Cup
Current world champion, France, received another blow for their chances in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. Juventus’ Paul Pogba will not be able to recover in time and is out of the competition.
The information was confirmed by Rafaela Pimenta, the player’s agent, through a press release. Pogba’s return date is assessed for early 2023.
“After yesterday and today medical review in Turin and Pittsburgh, it is extremely painful to report that Paul Pogba will still need recovery time from his surgery. For this reason, Paul will not be able to join the Juventus team before the World Cup break or the French national team in Qatar”.
Pogba had returned to training since he seemed to be recovered from a problem in his right knee. However, a new injury due to muscle overload put an end to the possible return of the midfielder before the World Cup.
“If positive thinking changed things, Paul would be playing tomorrow. But what changes things are hard work, resilience and discipline, which are the only things on Paul’s mind in these difficult times. Paul will continue to work at his best to get back on the pitch to the fans and his team as soon as possible, “he finished.
Pogba won only one match in the 2022/23 season during the preseason against Chivas on 23 July. The star has suffered from physical problems and could not have played in official game since his return to Juventus.
