Barely returned to Juventus Turin this summer, Paul Pogba suffered a serious injury during his team’s friendly match against Chivas.
Injured in the right knee, Paul Pogba was rather reassuring when leaving the lawn. But 24 hours later, terrible news has fallen: the tricolor international suffers from an injury to the lateral meniscus of his right knee. Another blow in the turbulent career of Paul Pogba, who now has to make a crucial decision for his future regarding the healing of his knee. Paul Pogba must choose between two operations: meniscectomy or meniscal suture. The first operation would take him away from the land between 40 and 60 days. The second would lead to an absence of between 3 and 4 months but would offer more certainty in the long term. The calculation is quickly made, if Paul Pogba prefers the second operation, he will miss the World Cup with France but could be spared injuries for the end of his career.
Pogba, a crucial choice about his injury
According to information from Tuttosport, Paul Pogba will go to Lyon on Monday for an emergency consultation with Doctor Bertrand Cottet-Sonnery. This great specialist, who advised Zlatan Ibrahimovic before his knee operation, will try to best advise Paul Pogba, his entourage as well as the leaders of Juventus Turin. “Pogba is described as hesitant, but always hoping to be able to avoid the second hypothesis, which is the heaviest operation” writes the Italian newspaper in its edition of the day while Juventus Turin, which does not care a lot about the fate of the French team and the World Cup, hopes that Paul Pogba will choose the second operation, with a longer convalescence but more and more certainty over the long term. The final choice will be up to the player but Juventus Turin will of course have a say, unlike the staff of the Blues. Now it remains to be seen what crucial decision all parties will make for Paul Pogba’s future.
