Paul Pogba Banned: FIFA World Cup Winner Handed Four-Year Ban for Doping | #NwokeukwuMascot

Paul Pogba, the talented midfielder from France and Juventus, has been handed a four-year ban for a doping offense that occurred earlier this season, as reported by Italian media on Thursday.

According to Sky Sports Italy and La Repubblica, the sports prosecutor's request for a four-year ban has been granted.

Pogba was provisionally suspended by Italy's national anti-doping (NADO Italia) tribunal in September after testing positive for testosterone, which is a banned substance.

The doping test was conducted after Juventus' 3-0 Serie A season-opening victory against Udinese on August 20. The test detected the presence of testosterone, a hormone known to enhance athletes' endurance. It is worth mentioning that Pogba did not participate in that game and was listed as an unused substitute.

Furthermore, the positive doping test was confirmed through a counter-analysis on a second sample in October.

While Juventus has not provided an official statement, a source has confirmed that the club has been notified about the decision to impose a four-year ban on Pogba. The club will now assess the next steps to be taken.

Pogba's return to Juventus after leaving Manchester United on a free transfer in 2022 has been marred by a series of injuries. Last season, he struggled with knee and hamstring injuries, as well as knee surgery, which ultimately prevented him from representing France at the World Cup in Qatar.

This ban is a significant blow to Pogba's career and raises questions about his future in professional football.
