Juventus midfielder, Paul Pogba may miss playing World Cup as the Juventus midfielder is set to undergo knee surgery.
The Juventus midfielder will go under the knife after his meniscus injury failed to respond to conservative treatment. Pogba will undergo surgery this week which is expected to keep him out of action for between 40 and 60 days. France’s first World Cup fixture is on November 22 against Australia.
Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri offered an update on Pogba’s fitness ahead of his team’s Champions League clash at Paris Saint-Germain. “We will get Paul Pogba back in January,” he told reporters. “Whether he plays the World Cup or not is not my problem.”
Pogba’s injury makes him a major doubt for France’s World Cup campaign as Les Bleus aim to defend their trophy. Pogba has yet to feature in Serie A for the Turin giants since returning from Manchester United in the summer.
