The descent into hell of Paul Pogba (30 years old) continues. After experiencing a very serious injury and an organized extortion attempt involving, among others, his brother Mathias, the midfielder must now face a doping case. Indeed, the French international tested positive for testosterone on August 20, during the match on the first day of Serie A Udinese-Juventus Turin (0-3).

New troubles that he could have avoided…with a little reading. Because according to the latest revelations from La Gazzetta dello Sport, the instructions for the medication he took, recommended by one of his doctor friends, warned of the risks of doping. A negligence that could cost him dearly.

For the moment, “la Pioche” is temporarily suspended. And if the counter-analysis confirms the traces of testosterone, he would risk between two and four years of suspension depending on his intention to improve his performance or not. And if he is definitively convicted of doping, Juventus Turin could terminate his contract which runs until June 2026. It would thus save nearly €30 million, the amount of his salaries over the period.

As a reminder, Paul Pogba would have admitted to having ingested adrenaline – through a food supplement – unintentionally. Rafaela Pimenta, who defends his interests, quickly spoke to assure that he “never wanted to break a rule”. We must now wait for the counter-analysis to know the outcome of this affair.
