Juventus have been handed a big wave of relief after the injury sustained by Paul Pogba was declared as not so serious. The Frenchman, who only recently made his comeback onto the big stage, suffered a pain in the back of his thigh in the final minutes of the 2-0 win against Empoli at the Stadio Carlo Castellani, birthing fears of yet another lengthy layoff.
However, latest reports emerging from the Bianconeri camp indicate that the ex-Manchester United midfielder will not be sidelined for long.
The statement by Juventus also included an update for Federico Gatti.
“Paul Pogba and Federico Gatti underwent instrumental tests today at J|Medical following the injuries reported yesterday during the match against Empoli. Paul Pogba’s diagnostic tests excluded muscle injuries and highlighted a slight overload of the semimembranosus muscle of the right thigh, while Federico Gatti reported a sprain of his left ankle. The two players have already started the rehabilitation process aimed at resuming competitive activity.”
Coach Max Allegri confirmed following the clash that Pogba had suffered a setback, but eventually tests had to be conducted to come to a verdict, which declared that the midfielder had a only a slight overload of the muscle in his thigh.
