Pogba, Empoli-Juve injury: exams today, how are you?

The Frenchman scares Juventus fans

Paul Pogba scares Juventus fans. The French midfielder, during yesterday’s match won 2-0 at Empoli, suffered a thigh discomfort in the second half. Pogba remained on the field, but his conditions will have to be evaluated and the verdict of the exams scheduled for today is awaited. “Paul felt a pain in the back. Let’s see what he will be from the results, sorry because he played a quality game”, the words of the Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri.

Pogba, still far from optimal condition, yesterday showed flashes of a quality that no other Juventus midfielder can guarantee. The Frenchman also scored with a volley, but the goal was thwarted by Vlahovic’s offside. The transalpine is considered a new signing by Juve, which in the 2023 transfer market has included only one new element in the workforce, Timothy Weah. Pogba, who returned to Turin in the summer of 2022 on a free transfer, missed last season almost entirely: the meniscus injury he suffered a year ago was only surgically treated in the autumn, with an inevitable lengthening of recovery times. In the final phase of the season, the former Manchester United player had to deal with muscle problems which slowed his return to the field. Now, Empoli’s ailment.
