Injury delays Paul Pogba’s Juventus debut yet again
Paul Pogba’s Juventus debut has been further delayed after the midfielder suffered another injury setback, Massimiliano Allegri has confirmed.
The France international was seen waving to the fans as he warmed up before the match against Monza but he remained an unused substitute as the Bianconeri suffered a shock defeat. There was growing optimism about Pogba’s debut coming against Lazio in the Coppa Italia but that has now been postponed.
Speaking about injuries ahead of the Lazio game, Allegri said: “Apart from the long-term absentee Bonucci, Pogba will not be there due to soreness in his flexors. [Dusan] Vlahovic? He should play from the start.”
After returning to Turin as a free agent in the summer of 2022 from Manchester United, Pogba is yet to play for Juve. He suffered a serious knee injury and had to undergo surgery which ruled him out of the World Cup in Qatar and while he has since returned to training, he’s still not ready to be involved in a match.
