Following his latest injury setback, the Juventus midfielder will play no part for Les Blues in November’s showpiece.
Paul Pogba will not play in the 2022 World Cup with the France team. His lawyer, Rafael Pimenta, confirmed on Monday.
Pimenta, the lawyer of the midfielder of Juventus, formalized this Monday his forfeit for Qatar in a statement sent to AFP.
“After medical examinations yesterday (Sunday) and today (Monday), it is extremely painful to inform that Paul Pogba will still need rehabilitation after his operation (of a knee in early September). For this reason, Paul will not be able to join (…) the France team in Qatar.” she was quoted to have said in a statement via RMC Sport.
The Pogba returned to training with Juventus last week in what looked like a timely boost for Massimiliano Allegri’s team, but the midfielder has now picked up what is understood to be a muscle injury in his thigh and could be ruled out for ten more days.
