The playmaker may be sweating on his fitness for the start of the season, with him already ruled out of a pre-season clash with Barcelona in Dallas.
Paul Pogba’s Juventus homecoming has been brought to an abrupt halt as the France international has been forced out of their pre-season preparations thanks to a knee injury. The former Bianconeri star rejoined the Turin outfit six years after he left for a second stint with Manchester United.
But after more than a turbulent half-decade at Old Trafford, the World Cup winner has returned to link up for a sophomore spell with Massimiliano Allegri’s side, where he originally made his name.
Yet both player and coach may now be sweating on a race to make the start of the new season, after Pogba was sidelined in training with an issue in his lateral meniscus, forcing him out of Wednesay’s clash with Barcelona in Texas.
