Massimiliano Allegri, the coach of Juventus Turin, has more or less acted on the package of the tricolor midfielder for the next three matches of the Bianconeri.
Bad news for Paul Pogba. And the Blues. Back in training for a few days after knee surgery, not to mention his various extra-sporting worries, the 29-year-old tricolor international midfielder (91 caps, 11 goals) will still have to wait before returning to the field. “(Federico) Chiesa and Pogba are not in the group (against Lecce this Saturday in Serie A). There’s no chance they’ll be in Wednesday’s (against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League) and there’s a 99% chance they won’t be available against Inter Milan either. (Sunday 6 November)“said Juve coach Max Allegri on Friday.
And to add:If they return, and it is very unlikely, they will be available against Verona (November 10) and Lazio (November 13). But it’s very unlikely“. Clearly, Pogba will not play again before the announcement of the list of players selected by Didier Deschamps for the World Cup on November 9.
No straight pass
Didier Deschamps was very clear: he will not take any injured player to Qatar. “There are important steps. First, that the player is cured, that is the condition. Without it, there is not even to ask the question. Then, you have to assess the athletic condition, said the coach in an interview with Brut. It all depends on the length of the stoppage, the number of matches they could have made between their injuries and when they will be with us. And a third aspect is competition for the position.»
In this case, Paul Pogba has not played a single minute since the start of the season with Juventus Turin. His last game with Manchester United? April 19, 2022, against Liverpool (4-0 defeat). We haven’t seen the Seine-et-Marnais under the tunic of the French team since last March, during the 5-0 victory against South Africa, with a decisive pass in the key.
