Relief for Juventus… and Didier Deschamps. Injured in the right knee, Paul Pogba will ultimately not be presented, the Turin club announced to AFP on Tuesday August 2. The French will still miss the resumption of Serie A and will be absent for about five weeks. It is however a lesser evil for the midfielder.

An operation could have kept him away from the field for several months and would probably have compromised his participation in the World Cup, from November 21. The French world champion, who returned to Juve this summer after six years at Manchester United, will submit to a “conservative therapy for five weeks“, told AFP a spokesperson for the Italian club.
