Former Man Utd Star To Miss 2021 World Cup

France midfielder Paul Pogba is set to miss the World Cup due to continuing knee problems.

Pogba returned to training with Juventus only this month following surgery on his right knee in September. He has not played since returning to Juventus from Manchester United due to a new injury.

Tests in Italy and the US confirmed the 29-year-old will not be fit in time for the 2022 World Cup, which starts on the 20th of November.

France are the reigning world champions, having won the title in Russia four years ago.

“We won’t see him until 2023, and his entourage have confirmed that also he will be out of the World Cup,” a Juventus spokesman told The Associated Press on Monday.

“After medical exams yesterday and today, it is extremely painful to announce that Paul Pogba needs more rehabilitation after his operation,” his agent, Rafaela Pimenta, said in a statement on Monday.

“For that reason, Paul can’t be part of the France team in Qatar.”
