Juventus have confirmed that Paul Pogba will not take part in their journey to pre-season trip to Dallas after he sustained an injury. The Frenchman limped off the pitch yesterday and despite giving the thumbs-up, further tests have revealed a meniscus injury.
Juventus have confirmed the news in a brief statement:
Following the pain reported in his right knee, Paul Pogba underwent radiological examinations, which revealed a lesion of the lateral meniscus. In the next few hours, he will undergo a specialist orthopaedic consultation. Therefore, he will not take part in the trip to Dallas to continue treatment.
While there’s no official word on his recovery time, there is some suggestion in this morning’s Italian press that he could miss part of the new season.
