The Frenchman, known for being one of the best midfielders, faced a dramatic turn of events when he tested positive for elevated levels of testosterone on September 11, 2023. This initial positive test led to Pogba’s exclusion from play, and he has not appeared for the Bianconeri since then, marking a significant break in his career.

Subsequent tests, including a ‘B’ sample, reaffirmed the initial findings, prompting a provisional suspension and triggering a prolonged legal battle. Despite efforts to defend himself, Pogba’s case was met with a resolute decision from the National Anti-Doping Tribunal, which accepted the Anti-Doping Prosecutor’s Office’s plea for a four-year ban.

Pogba and his legal team, led by Mr. Pierfilippo Laviani, engaged in a rigorous defense, attempting to refute any claims of intentional doping. However, the inability to substantiate his innocence has left Pogba facing the stark reality of a prolonged absence from the sport.

The implications of this ban extend beyond Pogba’s immediate career, as it raises serious questions about his contractual obligations with Juventus. Tied to the club until 2025, the termination of his contract looms as a possibility, further worsens the uncertainties surrounding his future in football.

Despite the setback, Pogba remains resolute in his determination to challenge the ban. He intends to appeal the decision by pursuing the case at the Court of Arbitration for Sport, signaling his willingness to exhaust all legal avenues in a bid to overturn the ban and salvage his footballing career.
