Juventus' Paul Pogba ruled out for 6-7 weeks due to injury
Juventus have confirmed that Paul Pogba will be out injured until May due to a hamstring injury. The France international, who has been in tremendous form for Juventus this season, was taken off in the second leg of Juventus’ round-of-16 clash against Borussia Dortmund.
With the upcoming Copa Italia semi-finals and Champions league quarter-finals, the loss of the 22-year-old midfielder could prove to be a critical point in Juventus’ bid for a treble.
The Juventus management however appeared confident over his availability for the second leg of Champions League semi-final, if his team manages to progress to the last four.
They issued a statement on Thursday, confirming the extent of Pogba’s injury. "Paul Pogba, who was brought off during the first half of Dortmund-Juventus, has been medically examined," a statement on the club's website read.
"Magnetic resonance imaging confirmed the initial suspicion of a second-degree injury to Pogba's right hamstring. The recovery schedule for the midfielder is due to take 50 days."
The Frenchman has been one of the best players in Europe this season and has been Juventus’ best player. Many top European clubs, including his former team Manchester United, have reportedly been interested in his signature and looking to make him the linchpin of their team for the future.
