Four years of ban for doping against Paul Pogba

On February 29, 2024, the French midfielder of Juventus, Paul Pogba, received a four-year disqualification sanction after testing positive for testosterone following the Udinese-Juve match on August 20. The Anti-Doping Prosecutor’s Office imposed the punishment, putting an end to Pogba’s career.

Despite not playing in the mentioned match and only having played two games this season, Pogba was provisionally suspended since the news of his positive test came to light. The 31-year-old midfielder had requested a counteranalysis in September, which confirmed his positive result in October, leading to the harsh sanction.

Pogba, a world champion with France in 2018, is considering appealing the decision to either the CAS of Lausanne or the National Anti-Doping Court of Appeal. The footballer’s career has been marked by transfers between Manchester United and Juventus, with Real Madrid showing interest in signing him in the past.

The use of Dehydroepiandrosterone (Dhea), a commonly found steroid hormone, led to Pogba’s positive test, which he attributed to a contaminated supplement. The National Anti-Doping Court suspended him for violating anti-doping rules regarding prohibited substances.

This news comes as a significant blow to Pogba and his fans, as the accomplished midfielder faces a long suspension from the sport he excelled in.
