Paul Pogba has made a shocking statement

Paul Pogba, 31, a key midfielder for Juventus, Manchester United, and the French national team, has made a shocking statement.

“Paul Pogba has hired a sports lawyer as he faces a disgraceful career end,” the UK’s Daily Mail reported last December.

Earlier that month, Italian outlet Football Italia reported that “Juventus are preparing to end their relationship with Paul Pogba”. The same day, Sky Sports in the UK reported that “Pogba could face a ban of up to four years. Italian anti-doping prosecutors have asked for a ban of up to four years. It could end his career.”

Pogba failed a doping test last August. At the time, Pogba’s current club, Juventus, said: “The club informs you that today, September 11, 2023, Pogba has received a precautionary suspension from the National Anti-Doping Organization (NADO) following the results of the test carried out on August 20, 2023. The club will consider what next steps to take,” 안전놀이터 the official statement read.

The match in question was against Udinese, which Juventus won 3-0.

Pogba did not play in the match and was only on the bench, but was randomly selected for a post-match drug test. The test revealed a problem with his testosterone levels.

Testosterone is a male hormone that increases endurance in athletes and is one of the most common banned substances. A spokesperson for NADO explained that Pogba’s sample was found to contain “non-tolerated testosterone metabolites,” which are banned substances, and therefore violated anti-doping rules.

Pogba strongly insisted at the time that it was unintentional, but there was no reversal: he insisted he never intended to break the rules and requested a second analysis of the positive test, which also came back positive. Both samples showed dihydroepiandrosterone (DHEA), which stimulates the production of testosterone and other hormones.

It turns out that an unsuspecting supplement was the culprit.

“A source told ESPN that Pogba was prescribed the food supplement by one of his friends who is a doctor in Miami, USA. The particular supplement is available in the U.S., but not in Italy,” according to ESPN.

Football Italia quoted Gazzetta dello Sport as saying, “Juventus and Pogba are destined to part ways as soon as the punishment is finalized. “Pogba joined Juventus from Manchester United on a free transfer in 2022, but since then he has played just eight games for the Bianconeri. However, he has since played just eight games for the Bianconeri due to injury.”

If the four-year ban is upheld, Pogba could be forced to retire. Born in 1993, Pogba is 31 years old, and in four years he will be 35, the age at which most players consider retirement. He hasn”t been playing well for a few years now due to a series of injuries and poor performances, so it”s almost impossible for him to come back after four years away from the game.

Recently, Pogba seems to have come to terms with this fact. He gave an interview to ‘One Jobless Boy’ on the 23rd (KST). And here he spat out some shocking words.

As reported by Sports Bible,

He said, “I’m done. Pogba doesn’t exist anymore,” he said. OneJoblessBoy reiterated his words, saying, “Pogba has stopped playing soccer,” suggesting that Pogba’s soccer career is over.

The former Manchester United youth product moved to Juventus in 2012. Over the next four seasons, Pogba developed into a world-class player, scoring 34 goals and providing 40 assists in 178 official appearances, before rejoining United for the 2016-2017 season. United paid €105 million ($140.3 million) for Pogba.

Pogba didn’t perform as well as expected at United upon his return. A combination of indiscipline and injuries took a turn for the worst.

Eventually, United and Pogba parted ways, and he rejoined Juventus. However, 슬롯사이트 순위 his career seems to have come to an end. “I don’t know who I am anymore,” Pogba said, “soccer was my life, my passion,” he said weakly.

“I feel like I’ve lost myself now,” he added, effectively announcing his retirement.
