UncategorizedPogba suspended for failing drugs test by admin September 13, 2023 written by admin September 13, 2023 Bookmark 2 Paul PogbaJuventus midfielder, Paul Pogba, has been provisionally suspended from playing after a drugs test found elevated levels of tes tosterone in his system.Italy’s national anti-doping tribunal (Nado) said Pogba was tested after Juve’s 3-0 win at Udinese on 20 August.The 30-year-old France international, an unused substitute, was randomly selected for post-match drug testing.If found guilty of doping, he could face a ban of between two and four years.Juventus said in a statement: “Juventus Football Club announces that today, 11 September, 2023, the footballer, Paul Labile Pogba, received a precautionary suspension order from the National Anti-Doping Tribunal following the results of tests carried out on 20 August, 2023.“The club reserves the right to consider the next procedural steps.”Pogba’s agent, Rafaela Pimenta, said she was “awaiting the second sample and cannot have an opinion before the results”.“What is certain is that Paul Pogba never wanted to break a rule,” Pimenta added.Nado said Pogba had violated anti-doping rules when it found the prohibited substance “non-endogenous testosterone metabolites” and the results were “consistent with the exogenous origin of the target compounds”.Testosterone is a hormone that increases the endurance of athletes.Pogba has three days to produce a counter-analysis of the result to Nado.Juventus re-signed Pogba on a four-year deal in July 2022 after the player ran down his contract at Manchester United and left as a free agent.However, Pogba’s return to Turin has been beset by persistent injury problems which also saw him miss last year’s World Cup in Qatar.Pogba has played a total of 51 minutes as a substitute this season in games with Bologna and Empoli.Last season he managed 108 minutes over six Serie A games, three brief appearances and one assist in the Europa League, and 11 minutes in the Coppa Italia – a total of 162 minutes and no goals.Pogba’s injury problems resurfaced recently, with Juventus boss, Massimo Allegri, saying the player picked up a minor back problem following his appearance against Empoli. —BBCRead NextSeptember 13, 2023Voeller rules out succeeding FlickSeptember 13, 2023Former Spanish soccer chief to testify in court in Hermoso kiss caseSeptember 13, 2023Everton set to be soldSeptember 13, 2023Murray: Djokovic will dominate for long timeSeptember 13, 2023Portugal chalk up biggest win without suspended RonaldoSeptember 12, 2023Spanish FA president resignsSeptember 12, 2023Djokovic wins 24th Grand SlamSeptember 12, 2023Terms agreed for Joshua v Wilder fightSeptember 11, 2023Neymar becomes Brazil all-time men’s record scorerSeptember 11, 2023Coco Gauff wins maiden Grand Slam 0 comment 0 FacebookTwitterPinterestEmail admin Follow Author previous post This Happy Groom is on a Premium Vibe!
