Former Manchester United star Paul Pogba, has been banned from football for four years due to doping.

The 30-year-old, a World Cup winner with France, failed doping test due to elevated levels of testosterone in August last year while playing for Juventus.

He was provisionally suspended in September. Counter analysis of a B sample found the same results produced by his initial doping test in August, leaving his fate in the hands of Italy’s anti-doping prosecutor’s office.

The National Anti-Doping Tribunal was tasked with determining a penalty, and it has been officially announced that Pogba will be ineligible to participate in matches until at least 2028.

This sanction represents the maximum ban allowable for a player.

Pogba’s contract with current employers Juventus is set to run until the summer of 2026 and he will now never play for the side again. His second stint with the club has been a disaster.

The Frenchman – who won the World Cup with his nation in 2018 – returned to Turin in 2022 on a free transfer from Manchester United.

His first season was constantly disrupted by injury, while he made just two appearances this season before being suspended.

Pogba’s suspension is open to potential appeal. He is still under contract with Juventus until 2026.
