Pogba faces four-year ban

Juventus midfielder, Paul Pogba, has reportedly produced a second positive drug test following an analysis of his B sample.

Recall that Pogba returned positive after Juventus’ first game of the season against Udinese on August 20, a game in which he did not play.

The former Manchester United star was subsequently suspended by Italy’s national anti-doping tribunal on an initial precautionary basis.

The 30-year-old was given three days to request his B sample, which has now produced the same result – according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

The maximum suspension in such cases is four years.

This means an initial two-year ban, which can be doubled if it is proven that Pogba took the substance deliberately.
