French midfielder Paul Pogba will be away again for three weeks from the competition after suffering a new adductor muscle injury, which means his absence from the international window for his country, according to a source close to his Italian club Juventus.
And Juventus indicated on its official website on Monday, March 13, 2023, that Pogba “suffered a first-degree injury to the adductor muscle in the right thigh.”
A club source told AFP that he would not return until “after the international window” and would be absent for “three weeks”.
Pogba scored his first appearance with his new-old team this season in a few minutes a few days ago in the league against Turin and Roma, but he missed the last match on Sunday against Sampdoria after he was injured in the morning exercises.
Consequently, the 2018 world champion will miss France’s matches against the Netherlands and Ireland on the 24th and 28th of this month at the start of the 2024 European Cup qualifiers.
He has not played with the “Roosters” since March 2022.
He suffered an injury last July and underwent surgery in September that prevented him from starting the season and the Qatar 2022 World Cup, in which France relinquished its title by losing to Argentina on penalties.
