Juventus star Paul Pogba is facing a fresh injury concern, following his appearance against Empoli yesterday.
The Frenchman came on in the second half against the Azzurri and he did find the back of the net once, but the goal was ruled out for offside. Later in the game, the midfielder was seen limping around for a fair few minutes.
La Gazzetta dello Sport state that after the game when the player’s were celebrating with the away crowd, Pogba had walked away with the Juventus health staff. The leg in question was the right one, where he has faced multiple injury problems over the last year or so. Max Alleigri stated in the post-game press conference that Pogba had felt discomfort on the back of his leg.
Sky Italia state that Pogba went straight into the dressing room after the game and this is quite a delicate moment for him. There is fear at the club that he has picked up another muscle injury and that will be quite a worrying possibility for the Bianconeri. The medical tests will reveal more about his situation.
