Pogba Feared to Have Suffered Another Muscular Injury

Paul Pogba is headed for some tests after picking up a thigh injury in the Empoli game. He managed to finish it after coming off the bench in the second half. Coach Massimiliano Allegri revealed the news in his post-game presser (via SportMediaset).

“We don’t know anything, but he felt some discomfort in the back of his leg. We’ll see the results of his exams Monday or Tuesday. We hope it’s nothing serious. He was getting back into good shape.”

Pogba missed the season opener due to poor conditioning because of a previous injury. He featured as a sub in the ensuing two matches, providing a subpar contribution.

The Frenchman missed most of the 2022/2023 season due to a meniscus tear that was initially mishandled. He tried to avoid surgery to be available for the World Cup and aggravated it. He eventually went under the knife in September, 40 days after sustaining it, and was on the mend for over four months.

Pogba is still dealing with lingering problems deriving from that knee injury and suffered multiple thigh issues after returning. He ultimately made just ten appearances in the past campaign, providing one assist. According to some outlets, the veteran took and failed the medicals for Galatasaray in recent days. However, the reports were later disproven, Goal informs.
