Without citing a source, Sky Sports and the ANSA news agency reported on Friday that Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba had tested positive for testosterone in another sample.
Following a test that was conducted following Juve’s 3 – 0 Serie A season-opening victory at Udinese on August 20, Pogba was temporarily suspended. The test revealed testosterone, an amino acid that boosts athletes’ endurance.
Due to privacy laws, the national anti-doping( NADO Italia ) tribunal in Italy declined to comment on Pogba’s case. Additionally, Juventus declined to offer any commentary.
At the time, Pogba’s agent Rafaela Pimenta claimed that he had never intended to flout the law. Pimenta was contacted by Reuters but could not be reached for comment right away.
Pogba could face a two – to four-year suspension if found guilty of doping. In June 2026, his agreement with Juve expires.
In the victory at Udinese, the 30-year-old Pogba was an unutilized substitute.
