Will Paul Pogba be able to compete in the World Cup? Injured in the right knee on July 25 in training, during the American tour of Juventus Turin, the French midfielder had decided at first not to undergo an intervention, which would have deprived him of the third World Cup of his career.
For Allegri, Pogba will not be ready for the World Cup
Finally, after having carried out tests at the start of the week, the 2018 world champion will have surgery on the affected meniscus this Monday evening in Turin. Pogba will now engage in a race against the clock. Even if the deadlines seem extremely tight, the international (91 caps, 11 goals) still hopes to be delivered in time for the World Cup in Qatar (November 20 – December 18).
His coach Massimiliano Allegri was much more pessimistic about his return, this Monday at a press conference, on the eve of the Champions League match against PSG. ” This (Monday) morning he trained for the second time but he stopped and decided to have surgery. If we’re realistic, he’ll be back in January.”announced the Italian technician.
