Pogba Returns For Juventus Since September Injury

Paul Pogba, a French midfielder who underwent knee surgery in early September and missed the World Cup in Qatar, practiced with his Juventus colleagues on Tuesday for the first time since October, according to his club.

The 29-year-old can be seen holding a ball in the center of his teammates in the photographs and video that the Bianconeri shared of the practice session on their website.

Pogba injured the meniscus in his right knee in July, delaying his return to action for Juventus after rejoining them from Manchester United in the summer.

He first decided against having surgery in an effort to make the Qatar event, but he subsequently had second thoughts.

Although La Gazzetta dello Sport said that Juventus’ main goal is to be able to depend on an in-form Pogba for the Europa League play-off matches against Nantes on February 16 and 23, his comeback to competition may happen before the end of January.

When Pogba returned to Juventus last summer, the team’s fans were ecstatic to welcome back a player whose first stint at the club (2012–2016) was highlighted by four league championships.

However, others have criticized his gradual rehabilitation, particularly his choice to travel to the mountains towards the end of 2022 while still being subjected to tiresome strength training and personal fitness regimens.

“Patience is not knowing how to wait, but knowing how to maintain a good attitude while waiting,” a philosophical Pogba posted on his Instagram at the end of December.

Pogba was a key member of the France team that won the World Cup in Russia four years ago. He scored in the 4-2 victory over Croatia in the final.
