Pogba, incredible turnaround?


By: Manu Tournoux

Suspended 4 years for doping, Paul Pogba has perhaps not completely lost hope in his fight to prove his innocence.

It was anticipated, it is now official: Paul Pogba received the maximum sanction following a positive test for testosterone. The 2018 world champion was suspended for 4 years. Information that sheds light on the rest of his career.

In this slump, Paul Pogba has perhaps not lost hope. The French international still has the possibility of leading a new fight to demonstrate his good faith, as highlighted by his coach Didier Deschamps, who did not hesitate to give him massive support.

“Paul will have to lead a new fight to defend himself”

I do not imagine for a single moment that Paul had the intention, the desire to take drugs, explained Didier Deschamps in remarks taken up by RMC. To know him well, I know that this is not at all in his state of mind. Now there are the facts and what the two samples taken reveal. The presence of the illicit hormone is indisputable. The problem is there and Paul will have to lead a new fight to defend himself, before the Court of Arbitration for Sport and convince the judges that he did not knowingly take prohibited products.. »

Like the sentence handed down this Thursday by the Italian Anti-Doping Court, what Paul has been going through for several months is extremely hard and I obviously cannot remain indifferent to his sentence, given everything he has achieved in the selection and the relationships we have built in the French team. Her situation saddens me and I sincerely hope that she can get better. I want to believe it anyway“, concluded the coach.
