Italy’s anti-doping tribunal has handed a four-year ban to Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba for doping, OwoSports.com.ng has sourced.

Several sources in Italy, including Repubblica and Sky Sport Italia confirm the anti-doping tribunal has accepted requests from the FIGC Prosecutor, so the French midfielder has been suspended for four years.

Pogba had failed a doping test on August 20, 2023 after the opening Serie A game of the season between Juventus and Udinese, which he had entirely spent on the bench.

DHEA, which can raise the level of testosterone, was found in Pogba’s body and a second sample also tested positive in October.

Pogba was precautionarily suspended in September 2023 so he hasn’t trained with the rest of his Juventus teammates since then. His salary was also cut to circa €2,400 per month, as provided by the collective agreement between clubs and the footballer’s association.
