Paul Pogba Returns to Training After Long Injury Layoff


Paul Pogba returned to training with Juventus on Tuesday, raising hopes that the midfielder can regain his form in time to be included on France’s World Cup squad. Pogba underwent surgery on his right knee in early September after tearing his meniscus during Juventus’ preseason tour of the United States in July — having rejoined the Italian club two weeks earlier from Manchester United.

“Happy to be on the green again!,” Pogba wrote in a post on Twitter on Tuesday, adding images from his little session with his teammates. This serves as a good news for the French national team due to the fact that they will already be missing the services of another key midfielder in the person of N’golo Kante.

N’Golo Kante will miss France’s defence of the World Cup after his club Chelsea said on Tuesday that the midfielder will be out of action for four months following surgery on a hamstring injury.

Defending champion France opens against Australia on 22 November at the World Cup in Qatar, with Denmark and Tunisia also in Group D.
