La Gazzetta dello Sport: Pogba’s doping test re-analysis postponed
MOSCOW, September 15 – The re-analysis of the positive doping test of Juventus Turin and France national football player Paul Pogba has been postponed to October 5, reports La Gazzetta dello Sport.
Pogba was suspended from football on Monday after it was revealed he had failed a doping test. Testosterone metabolites were detected in a sample taken from a 30-year-old Frenchman on August 20 after the first round match of the Italian Championship with Udinese.
Initially, the athlete’s doping test was re-tested on September 20. The Juventus player’s expert will not be available on the scheduled date, and the review has been rescheduled for October 5.
According to the Serie A collective agreement, if a verdict is passed on the Frenchman’s disqualification, Juventus may stop paying Pogba’s salary or terminate his contract on their own.
Pogba managed to play two matches in Serie A this season. The world champion joined Juventus in the summer of 2022. His agreement with the team expires in June 2026.
