Embattled Juventus midfielder, Paul Pogba, has tested positive for testosterone in a counter-analysis on a second sample, Sky Sports has reported.
Italy’s national anti-doping (NADO Italia) Tribunal refused to comment on Pogba’s case, citing privacy rules. Juventus also refused to comment on the case.
His agent Rafaela Pimenta said at the time that Pogba had never intended to break the rules. Reuters has contacted Pimenta, who was not immediately available for comment.
If found guilty of doping, Pogba could be suspended for between two and four years. His contract with Juve expires in June 2026.
The 30-year-old Pogba was an unused substitute in the win at Udinese.
