Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has tested positive for testosterone in the counter-analysis he submitted and now has seven days to present his defence. The Frenchman originally tested positive for increased levels of testosterone in August, but a second sample provided earlier this week for counter-analysis has once again tested positive.
Sky Sport Italia and a host of other sources confirm the news but an official statement from Juventus is still pending, amid reports that the club could look to terminate Pogba’s contract.
Asked about the news during his press conference ahead of Juventus v Torino, Bianconeri boss Max Allegri said:
“I didn’t know about the confirmation, I’m sorry. We are waiting for what’s coming next, it’s useless to comment now. Humanly, I am sorry.”
