Former Manchester United and current Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has been banned from football for four years after failing a random drug test in August 2023.

The 30-year-old French footballer tested positive for testosterone after Juventus’s first game of the 2023/2024 season against Udinese. 

This ban might be the end of the former World Cup winner’s career as he turns 31 next month, meaning he won’t be available to play football professionally again until he is almost 35 years old.

Paul Pogba was once the World’s most expensive player after Manchester United signed him from Juventus for a record 89 million Pounds. He was suspended in September by Italy’s national anti-doping body, and the country’s sports prosecutor’s request to ban Pogba for four years was later granted

A tribunal said Pogba had violated anti-doping rules when they found the prohibited substance “non-endogenous testosterone metabolites”, adding that the results were “consistent with the exogenous origin of the target compounds”.
