Juventus’ Paul Pogba set to appeal against four-year ban

Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba and his team are set to appeal the four-year ban that has now been imposed on him.

It was confirmed today that the anti-doping prosecutor has chosen to ban the Frenchman for four years after his urine tests after Juventus’ game against Udinese earlier in the season had tested positive for testosterone. He had undergone a counter-analysis but attempts proved futile even then.

Sky Italia state that while a four-year ban has been imposed, Pogba has the chance to appeal against the ban. And the midfielder, along with his team, have already decided that they will appeal to CAS in Laussane.

If CAS confirm the ruling from the anti-doping body in Italy, Pogba could only return to playing football in the 2027/28 campaign, when he would be over 34 years of age. 

Juventus haven’t made a statement about the announcement yet, but they could do it soon as the club are refusing to comment about the player’s ban.
