Paul Pogba has been confirmed to miss the Qatar 2022 World Cup with his home Country, France, after sustaining a knee injury in training at Juventus, two weeks after he officially returned to the Club on July 11.

According to Report, Pogba’s injury was not considered to be serious, as he was able to limp off the training pitch with support of Juve’s medical staff.

It soon became clear that the problem would be keeping Pogba out of action for some time, with Juve revealing in an official statement that tissues in his knee had been torn and further examination reveal he is now expected to undergo surgery.

This operation would keep him sidelined for a considerable period of time, followed by an extended recovery programme.

Pogba has returned to Italy from Juve’s pre-season tour of the United States, with two possible solutions to his knee problem now being considered.

The first will see him undergo a meniscectomy that will require around two months of recovery time – putting him back in contention for game time towards the end of October.

The second possibility would see medics look at suturing the meniscus, a procedure that boasts better full recovery rates but one that also requires a longer healing process to be taken in.

In that case, Pogba could be ruled out for four to five months.
