French midfielder Paul Pogba is likely to miss this year’s World Cup in Qatar. Pogba is in danger of missing the World Cup after suffering an injury during the pre-season tour.
The 29-year-old Pogba, who left Manchester United for Italian club Juventus at the end of the season, was injured during training. The knee injury sustained during training was initially reported to be minor, but Pogba’s injury appears to be serious.
International media have mentioned that he will have to stay out of the field for a long time due to knee surgery. For that reason, it is suspected that Pogba will not play in the World Cup.
Pogba is certain to miss the World Cup in Qatar if he has to undergo surgery. It is said that he will be out of the field for about 2 months even if he does not have to undergo surgery.
However, Juventus has not given official information about Pogba’s injury. They said that only after a full examination of Pogba’s injury can he tell how long it will take.
Pogba’s injury has thrown Juventus into crisis. Since he will not be able to play for a long time, they have to think about who will play as his substitute.
