Paul Pogba faces a potential four-year football ban after testing positive for elevated testosterone levels. Following a random drugs test post-Juventus’ 3-0 victory at Udinese on August 20, Italy’s anti-doping tribunal (NADO Italia) temporarily suspended the midfielder.
Paul Pogba under investigation
Pogba must provide a counter-analysis within three days. If found guilty of doping, he may endure a two to four-year suspension. NADO Italia cited a violation of anti-doping regulations, detecting “non-endogenous testosterone metabolites” in Pogba’s test.
The France international has faced challenges at Juventus since his return from Manchester United in 2022, including injuries, disciplinary issues, and alleged blackmail attempts.
