Juventus receive ‘positive’ Paul Pogba injury update

Juventus have reportedly received a positive medical report, indicating their long-term absentee Paul Pogba could soon regain full fitness.

According to Sportface, the 30-year-old midfielder underwent a round of medical tests that left the Italians cautiously enthusiastic about his return date.

While he won’t return to action just yet, Juventus are optimistic about having him back for the final stretch, as he’ll likely need more time to recover.

Since moving back to the Allianz Stadium last summer, the Frenchman has barely featured for the Bianconeri, recording only 35 minutes of Serie A football.

One injury setback after another has turned the former Manchester United flop into a forgotten figure in Turin, casting doubt on his long-term future in the Alpes.

Pogba’s recurring fitness problems led to speculation about Juventus contemplating terminating his lucrative contract, but the club acted swiftly to play down such talks.

Despite his underwhelming time at Old Trafford, Massimiliano Allegri’s side had high hopes for the skilful playmaker, but they’ve yet to see him in action.

Barring two cameo appearances against Monza and Roma earlier this year, the 2018 World Cup winner has been a spectator in 2022/23 due to different injury issues.

After undergoing invasive knee surgery upon his return to Juventus in September, he was anticipated to rejoin the team in January, but it did not come to fruition.

When it looked like Pogba’s second stint in Turin could gain momentum, he picked up a muscle problem while taking free kicks in training in February and has been unavailable ever since.

Unlike the club powerbrokers, Juventus supporters seem to be running out of patience with the injury-prone star, who was spotted skiing during the winter break.

No stranger to off-field shenanigans, Pogba risks falling out of favour with the Bianconeri fanbase without even having a chance to disappoint them on the pitch.

As evidenced by his bizarre season in Serie A, Man Utd’s decision to cut him loose last summer without losing any slip over his departure was spot on.
