Tyson Fury to save Pogba’s career!


By: Manu Tournoux

Paul Pogba will call on sports lawyer Mike Morgan to fight a doping ban which could end his career, according to sources.

The Juventus midfielder turned to the specialist, who has worked with Tyson Fury, Conor Benn and Chris Froome, reports the DailyMail.

The Morgan Sports Law firm – which declined to comment on the publication’s question – has assisted athletes when they faced similar doping investigations.

Morgan’s work is believed to be underway to challenge the ban after Pogba tested positive for testosterone-boosting DHEA.

The same report states that Pogba could face a four-year ban, the usual punishment for this type of charge.

Juventus also stopped paying Pogba’s £130,000-a-week salary following the accusations. Pogba chose not to negotiate with Italy’s anti-doping agency, so the case will be tried in the country’s anti-doping court. At 30, a four-year ban could end his career, although it is possible he could play in the Saudi Pro League or MLS.

Pogba vehemently denies any wrongdoing, but has not refuted the claim that DHEA was present in his body. Morgan is likely to argue that taking the drug was a mistake and that the former Manchester United player had no idea how the drug ended up in his system, having unwittingly ingested it.
