Former Juventus doctor Professor Fabrizio Tencone has given his opinion on Paul Pogba’s injury and says missing the World Cup is a blessing for the midfielder and Juventus.
The midfielder was injured in pre-season but refused immediate surgery, hampering his chances of a quick recovery.
After returning to light training, he suffered a setback as he looks to step up and start playing.
The latest injury keeps him out of the World Cup and Tencone believes it is to his benefit because he will have more time to recover properly and work on his comeback without pressure.
He said through Il Bianconero:
“I feel like I have a hypothesis that in January Juve will find a player in good shape. If the joint situation is that of the press releases and there are no complications, I hope that in these two months his recovery will be progressive and in accordance with the necessary times. His absence from the world championships will obviously be a source of regret for Pogba, but surely his knee will win. And in theory Juve too, because the player will have plenty of time to recover well “
Juve FC says
Pogba is one of our key signings of the summer and we had high expectations when he rejoined the club.
All of that has had to be put behind us as we watch our team battle for form.
However, as long as he comes back stronger and better, it’s worth waiting until he’s 100% before picking him up again.
