Pogba to undergo surgery with World Cup place in doubt, Allegri confirms

0

Pogba
ended
a
six-year
spell
at
Manchester
United
to
return
to
Turin
in
July
but
has
yet
to
play
a
competitive
game
during
his
second
Bianconeri
spell
after
injuring
his
meniscus.

The
midfielder,
who
was
a
key
part
of
France’s
2018
World
Cup-winning
side,
initially
opted
for
therapy
over
surgery
in
a
bid
to
ease
his
injury
woes
ahead
of
the
tournament
in
Qatar,
which
begins
in
November.

But
speaking
ahead
of
Juventus’ Champions
League
group-stage
trip
to
Paris
Saint-Germain,
Allegri
revealed
the
29-year-old
will
now
go
under
the
knife,
casting
doubt
over
his
chances
of
featuring
in
Qatar.

“I
have
to
count
on
having
him
back
in
January.
Whether
he
plays
the
World
Cup
or
not
isn’t
my
problem,”
Allegri
said
on
Monday.

“This
morning
he
trained
for
the
second
time,
but
then
stopped,
and
it
was
then
decided
that
he
will
undergo
surgery.

“I
hope
we
get
him
back
before
the
World
Cup.
But
there
are
[less
than
three
months]
to
go
until
it
starts.

“The
World
Cup
isn’t
my
problem.
Juventus
is,
which
returns
in
January.

“Pogba
had
made
a
conservative
choice,
we
will
get
him
back
in
January.
It
will
hardly
be
before
November,
we
need
to
be
realistic.”

However,
Allegri
claims
he
is
not
irritated
by
Pogba’s
initial
doubts
over
the
procedure,
which
has
essentially
set
the
midfielder’s
recovery
back
by
over
a
month.

“From
here
you
look
forward,”
he
said.
“The
past
does
not
change,
if
you
make
a
decision
it
is
right,
then
you
see
if
it
was
done
well
or
badly.

“We
do
not
think
about
whether
we
might
have
done
it.
Now
let’s
think
about
having
a
good
game
[on
Tuesday].”

While
Pogba
will
be
unable
to
make
the
trip
to
his
home
country
to
feature
at
the
Parc
des
Princes,
Juventus
will
also
be
without
former
PSG
winger
Angel
Di
Maria
as
he
continues
to
battle
a
calf
injury.

Allegri
highlighted
the
need
to
manage
the
Argentinian’s
workload,
adding:
“I
made
him
play
against
Spezia
because
a
shock
was
needed.
On
Sunday
[against
Fiorentina]
he
was
better.

“Taking
him
with
us
to
Paris
and
risking
him
for
a
match
with
many
important
matches
between
now
and
November…
no.
Otherwise
he
loses
his
physical
condition,
he
would
be
of
no
use.”
