Juventus: a former president charges Paul Pogba


By: Manu Tournoux

Paul Pogba’s return to Juventus is turning into a fiasco more than ever. After his multiple injuries and his extortion case, he was accused of doping last September. This Thursday, he was sentenced to 4 years of suspension. One more blow to the head of the player, determined to fight and clear his honor. For its part, Juve has not yet officially reacted. But a former president of the Piedmontese club spoke.

This is Giovanni Cobolli Gigli, who managed the club between 2006 and 2009. For him, the people of Turin should never have brought back the 2018 world champion. His words are relayed by the Corriere dello Sport. “Juve lost when buying Pogba. The real mistake was taking it back. He no longer played at a high level and with consistency. He was bought as the renaissance man and, on the contrary, the numbers speak for themselves.” A good tackle from the ex-manager.
