Paul Pogba, a former member of Manchester United, ‘tests positive’ in a drug test following a Juventus game

According to reports in Italy, Pogba tested positive for high testosterone levels.

According to many Italian reports, former Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba allegedly tested positive for testosterone use.

As of this writing, neither the player nor Juventus, Serie A, or the Italian Football Federation have officially acknowledged the reports.

According to news agency ANSA, the midfielder for Juventus allegedly had excessive levels of the hormone when tested randomly following the Italian team’s inaugural Serie A match against Udinese on August 20.

Pogba, who won the World Cup with France in 2018, sat on the bench the entire game but has since entered matches against Bologna and Empoli as a substitute. Which organization conducted the testing is unclear.

According to Sportmediaset, if found guilty, Pogba could be taken before the National Anti-Doping Tribunal and might be barred from participating in any football-related activities for up to two years, with a potential four-year suspension if it is established the player took it knowingly.

The Frenchman’s participation in Juventus’ upcoming match against Lazio on Saturday at 2pm is now doubtful in light of the rumors.

Injuries have plagued Pogba for the majority of his Juventus comeback. Last season, he only appeared in 10 games due to four different serious injuries to his knee, groin, and hamstring. As a result, he missed the 2022 World Cup.

After moving from Juventus for a record £89 million in 2016, Pogba left United in 2022. In 233 games, he scored 39 goals and provided 51 assists, winning the Europa League and League Cup during that period.
