Pog-Banned: Ex-Manchester United Star Slapped With A Four Year Ban Due to Doping

Juventus football club’s star midfielder Paul Pogba has been banned from football for four years due to a doping case. The ban has been implemented under the World Anti-Doping Code.

The Ex-Manchester United midfielder will appeal against the ban in the Court of Arbitration of Sport following the decision made by Italy’s National Anti-Doping Tribunal.

The French international tested positive after the doping test in August 2023 and has been handed a ban till August 2027. According to the regulations of the World Anti-Doping Code the ban starts from the day an athlete goes through a doping test.

Paul Pogba will be 34 years old when the standard length of his doping ban comes to an end in 2027. Despite the ruling by the anti-doping court of Italy, the Juventus star remains determined to fight his case in the Court of Arbitration of Sport.

If the player can prove that the intake of a certain substance was not intentional, the ban can be reduced.

Following Juventus’ away game at Udinese in August, Pogba was suspended on a precautionary basis as he was found positive for the DHEA substance during his doping test. This substance boosts certain hormones in the body.

The World Cup winner has only made 8 appearances for Juventus since he signed for the club from Manchester United in 2022.
