Genius Midfielder, Pogba Caught Doping… The Greatest Risk to a Player’s Life
Testosterone detection… Juventus say they reserve the right to consider next procedural steps
Paul Pogba (30, Juventus), who was considered the best midfielder,
tested positive for drugs and faced the biggest threat to his life.
Italy’s ANSA news agency reported on the 11th (local time) that Pogba tested positive in a drug test by the Italian Anti-Doping Commission (NADO).
According to reports, NADO conducted a doping test on Pogba after Juventus’ home opening match against Udinese on the 20th of last month.
Pogba was unable to play in this game and remained on the bench, but was selected as a random test subject, and as a result of the test, 온라인카지노
‘non-endogenous testosterone metabolites’ were found in samples taken from Pogba’s body.
Testosterone is a hormone that increases endurance, but testosterone, which appears to have been produced externally rather than naturally synthesized within the body, was discovered in Pogba’s body.
Pogba was temporarily suspended from playing.
Now, you must submit materials refuting NADO’s inspection results within three days.
Depending on the subsequent trial and the results of the ‘B sample’ test, Pogba could be banned from playing for at least 2 years and up to 4 years.
His team, Juventus, announced on its website that Paul Pogba was caught doping and said,
“The club reserves the right to consider the next procedural steps.”
Looking at the situation Pogba is in, it doesn’t seem strange at all if Juventus ‘releases’ him due to this doping discovery.
Pogba, who returned to Juventus from Manchester United (England) ahead of last season, suffered a knee meniscus injury in late July last year, just two weeks after his return.
In order to help France’s bid to win the World Cup for the second time in a row,
he postponed the surgery and chose rehabilitation,
but ended up going on the operating table in September of the same year,
was unable to participate in the 2022 Qatar World Cup.
In addition to his knee, he suffered injuries to his groin, abdominal muscles, and hamstring (the muscle behind the thigh),
which kept him virtually out of the line for the entire season.
Last season, Pogba only played in 10 games in a Juventus uniform, all of which he played as a substitute.
He is also in a situation where it is difficult to mentally concentrate on soccer.
According to French media, Pogba reported to the police after receiving threats from a gang that included his older brother Matthias to hand over 13 million euros (17.4 billion won).
Pogba, a Frenchman of Guinean descent, was called a ‘genius midfielder’ for his good physique,
game management ability, and passing and shooting ability.
When transferring from Juventus to Manchester United in 2016,
the highest transfer fee ever paid at the time was 150 million euros (about 214.2 billion won).
He also left a significant mark on the national team,
including playing a key role in France’s victory at the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
It was Pogba who scored the winning goal in the final against Croatia in this tournament.
Juventus suffered from bad news.
Juventus was stripped of its right to participate in European competitions this season for violating UEFA’s club licensing and Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules.
