In a concerning development for both Juventus and French midfielder Paul Pogba, the football star could be facing another frustrating spell on the sidelines due to a potential back injury.
This setback comes as Pogba was beginning to regain his form and fitness following a prolonged injury layoff.
The Frenchman, who recently made a comeback after a lengthy absence due to a serious knee problem, featured for Juventus in their Serie A clash against Empoli. However, following the match, in which Juventus secured a 2-0 victory, Pogba complained of back pain. Manager Massimiliano Allegri confirmed the issue and stated that medical tests would be conducted in the coming days to assess the severity of the injury.
Since joining Juventus as a free agent in 2022 from Manchester United, Paul Pogba’s time on the pitch has been limited due to injuries. His previous knee problem kept him out of action for an extended period and even required surgery. This latest setback could potentially disrupt his return to regular playing time and impact Juventus’ plans for the upcoming matches.
The team is scheduled to face Lazio in Serie A on September 16. With Pogba’s injury status uncertain, Allegri and his coaching staff face a dilemma in selecting the squad for this crucial match.
Paul Pogba’s journey with Juventus has been marred by injuries, and fans and the club alike were hopeful that he could make a significant impact on their campaign this season. However, this recent setback raises concerns about his ability to stay fit and contribute consistently to the team’s efforts.
