Paul Pogba handed four-year ban for doping offence

Paul Pogba has been banned from football for four years for a doping offence.

The France and Juventus midfielder was provisionally suspended in September after testing positive for testosterone. Pogba won the World Cup with France and became the most expensive footballer in the world when Manchester United signed him £89m in 2016.

Pogba, 30, was an unused substitute for Juventus in a Serie A game against Udinese on 20 August when he tested positive for testosterone – a banned substance.

Italy’s national anti-doping body suspended Pogba and a request from Italy’s sports prosecutor to hand Pogba a four-year ban was 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”.
