Bad News For Paul Pogba As He Is Expected To Miss The World Cup

Paul Pogba's hopes of playing in the World Cup are in serious doubt with the player set to miss out 40-60 days after deciding to undergo surgery on a meniscus tear in his right knee after discussions with Juventus' medical staff which could make him a doubt for the World Cup.

The midfielder who re-joined Juventus in early July after his contract with Manchester United expired, initially swapped Manchester for Turin in 2012, but chose to return to Old Trafford in 2016.

Now back to Juventus, the 29-year-old was seen limping out of training in Los Angeles where an image on social media shows Pogba being assisted off the pitch by medical staff and it became known and confirmed he had suffered a lesion on his lateral meniscus.

The Frenchman had the chance to make a really difficult decision as to whether or not will he undergo an operation in order to try and resolve the issue long-term or take less serious measures now to allow him to take part in the upcoming World Cup.

Tests were carried out on him which confirmed the need for a meniscus operation. Pogba is now  forced to succumb to the surgery.
