Paul Pogba Banned From Football For Doping

Paul Pogba Banned From Football For Doping
Juventus player Paul Pogba has been banned from football for four years following a failed drug test.

Gatekeepers News reports that Pogba was initially suspended last year after tests showed elevated levels of testosterone in his system. The World Cup winner has now been banned from football until 2028.

Pogba was selected for random testing after Juventus’ 3-0 win at Udinese on August 20, 2023, when he had been an unused substitute.

Anti-doping body Nado Italia said he had violated rules when prohibited non-endogenous testosterone metabolites were found in the test.

“What is certain is that Paul Pogba never wanted to break a rule,” Pogba’s agent Rafaela Pimenta said at the time of the initial suspension.
