Pogba To Miss World Cup After Injury Setback

Date:

France midfielder, Paul Pogba, will miss the upcoming World Cup as he continues rehabilitation from a knee injury suffered in July. Pogba has not played for his club Juventus since rejoining this summer; having torn his meniscus in July during pre-season.

France kick-off their tournament in Qatar on November 22 against Australia, with barely three weeks for the 29-year-old to return to fitness.
Paul Pogba’s agent, Rafaela Pimenta said in a statement: “Following yesterday and today’s medical review, it is extremely painful to inform you that Paul will still need recovery time from his surgery. For this reason, Paul will not be able to join the Juventus squad before the World Cup break nor the French National Team in Qatar.

Juventus gave an update on his condition on Monday without explicitly mentioning he would miss the tournament, saying: “In light of the recent radiological examinations and the consultation carried out for the evaluation of his knee, Paul Pogba needs to continue his rehabilitation programme. If wishful thinking would change things, Paul would be playing tomorrow. But what changes things are hard work, resilience and discipline, all of which are the only things in Paul’s mind at these challenging times. Paul will continue working giving his very best to be back on the pitch for the fans and his team as soon as possible.”
