Pogba out for 8 weeks after surgery, confirms surgeon

According to L’Équipe France international Paul Pogba won’t be back in training with Juventus for up to eight weeks, after undergoing surgery on his right knee on Monday – the surgeon who made the procedure said the following on the player:

In agreement with the Juventus doctors, we have indicated a necessary time of eight weeks so that Pogba can return to the team and resume collective training. This is the estimated time. After that, we need to evaluate the conditions and reactions when he starts to strain.”

Speaking in a video posted on his social media yesterday, Paul Pogba (29) said that his knee surgery went well, whilst also stating that he was doing well mentally amidst accusations from his brother, Mathias, which implicate him in a witch doctor scandal. 

Pogba had been hoping to avoid surgery and preferred alternative treatments to the injury to his right knee. However, according to Fabrice Hawkins, he felt discomfort whilst dribbling in training yesterday, forcing him to undergo the surgery. 

The Juventus and French international midfielder said, “The operation went very well, I’m going to recover and come back very, very quickly.” 

He also thanked fans for their support during an ongoing scandal that implicated the former Manchester United man in a plot to curse international teammate Kylian Mbappé (23). “I wanted to thank you all for your messages, for your support. Know that mentally I’m okay despite all the worries, the injury, and the other problems. Mentally I’m okay,” he said.
