Juventus Star Paul Pogba Suspended for Anti-Doping Violation

Italian anti-doping authority NADO has suspended Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba due to a positive test for a banned substance. The French international’s failed test occurred after Juventus’ 3-0 victory over Udinese on August 20. NADO detected the presence of non-naturally produced testosterone, prompting the suspension. Pogba could potentially face a suspension ranging from two to four years,

depending on the outcome of appeals and investigations into the nature of the violation. Despite this setback, Pogba made appearances in Juventus’ recent matches against Bologna and Empoli before the international break. Juventus has acknowledged the precautionary suspension and stated that they will assess their next steps. Pogba’s return to Juventus from Manchester United in the 2022/23 season has been marred by injuries.
