France team: The announcement falls for the return of Pogba
Published on October 28, 2022 at 6:30 p.m.
Injured in a knee, Paul Pogba has not played a single match since the start of the season and that is of course worrying, with the World Cup fast approaching. Didier Deschamps would very much like to take him to Qatar, but his return to competition does not seem to be imminent for Juventus.
This season, we talked more about Paul Pogba for his extra-sporting escapades as well as for his performances on the pitch. The French midfielder finds himself at the heart of an incredible case of extortion of money tinged with death threats and kidnapping, notably involving his older brother Mathias. Not really the best way to approach a World Cup, knowing that in football things are not necessarily better.

« It’s not easy to manage, but psychologically he’s fine »
Still convalescing after his knee operation, Paul Pogba was able to receive a message from Didier Deschamps, who seems to be waiting for the last moment before making a real decision. » I talk to him regularly. He’s someone with a big mind. Obviously, linked to his injury, it is not easy to manage. But psychologically he is fine “explained the coach of the Bluesin an interview with Raw.
“The indispensable condition is that he be cured”
In the columns of The Teamhe dealt more broadly with the case of the wounded, since in addition to Pogba he has to deal with the situation of Raphael Varane or even of Mike Maignan. » Each case is different. For Raphaël, as for the others, the indispensable condition is that he be cured. The second criterion that we set is the athletic condition. We will accurately assess the player’s ability to chain “said Didier Deschamps, who will give his list for the World Cup on November 9.
Allegri does not see him returning until November 10
For Paul Pogba, he was able to receive a fairly clear message this Friday from Massimiliano Allegri, who does not seem to want to rush the return of his player at all, just like that of Federico Chiesa. » No, Chiesa and Pogba are not called up for Lecce (this Saturday) “said the coach of the Juventus, at a press conference. » Impossible to see them also against PSG on Wednesday and there is a 99% chance of not seeing them either against Inter (Sunday November 6). If they come back, it might be against Verona or Lazio, but it’s very difficult « .
