Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has been provisionally suspended as a result of a failed drugs test. The Juventus man was found to have elevated testosterone in his system last month.
He was an unused substitute during the game in question on 20th August. Juve beat Udinese 3-0.
His club have reacted to the news with a statement which reads: “Juventus Football Club announces that today, 11 September 2023, the footballer Paul Labile Pogba received a precautionary suspension from the National Anti-Doping Tribunal following the results of the tests carried out on 20 August 2023. The club reserves the right to consider the next procedural steps.”
Pogba now has three days to produce a counter-analysis of the result in order to avoid a ban. His agent Rafaela Pimenta has said: “(we are) 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.”

I just want to be with normal people, so they will love me for me -- not for the fame, not for the money.’ Sometimes it’s tough.”
