Pogba, banned for 4 years for testing positive for doping, says he will appeal

Testosterone detected in doping test, banned from competition for 4 years by Italian anti-doping tribunal
French midfielder Paul Pogba (Juventus), who was suspended for four years for testing positive for doping, announced that he would appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

Reporter Fabrizio Romano, an expert on the European soccer transfer market, announced on his social networking service (SNS) on the 29th (local time), “Pogba has been banned from playing for four years due to doping.”

Pogba conducted a doping test after the home opening match of the 2023-2024 Italian professional soccer Serie A against Udinese on August 20 last year.

Testosterone, a banned substance, was detected in the test.

Testosterone is known to improve endurance when injected, and is a representative banned drug designated by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

Accordingly, the Italian anti-doping tribunal suspended Pogba for four years on charges of testing positive for doping.

It is applied retroactively from September of last year, so it cannot be played on the field until September 2027.

Born in 1993, Pogba, now 31 years old, is virtually ready to retire.

Italian media outlet La Republica reported, “Unless Pogba appeals and CAS overturns the ruling, his career is destined to end here.”

It is reported that Pogba plans to appeal to CAS.

He said in his statement today, “I am sad and shocked that everything I have built so far has been taken away. “It’s heartbreaking,” he said. “I believe the verdict was wrong.” “I will appeal,” he said.

Pogba, who was once considered a world-class midfielder while leading France to victory at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, is on the verge of ending his career in shabby form. 온라인섯다
