Pogba holds out a glimmer of hope for easing the doping penalty

Pogba holds out a glimmer of hope for easing the doping penalty

Paul Pogba, a prominent figure in Juventus and the French national team, is currently wrestling to salvage his career following allegations of doping.

He is confronting a potential four-year ban, imperiling his association with Juventus, owing to a positive drug test after an Italian League match in August.

Pogba’s most recent game appearance was in Juventus’ match against Empoli on September 3, after which he was temporarily suspended on the 11th of the same month.

Reports from the Italian newspaper “Gazzetta dello Sport” confirm that the case will be handled by local authorities, not escalating to the International Sports Court.

According to the newspaper, the decision on Pogba’s suspension will be disclosed within 10 days. Subsequently, Pogba will have a 20-day window to negotiate a reduced penalty with the Anti-Doping Authority.

The article notes that Pogba, a key player in France’s 2018 World Cup win, faces a potential four-year ban.

Efforts are underway to strike an agreement aiming to decrease the penalty to two years. If this amicable resolution fails, Pogba will face another hearing after 40 days.

The report concludes by suggesting that there’s a slim chance that Pogba might receive a three-month suspension if he can prove that his use of the stimulant drug was unintentional.
