After suffering a new injury setback in training, Juventus coach Max Allegri has confirmed that midfielder Paul Pogba will play again for the team in three months.
Allegri said that Pogba, who has recovered from knee surgery, pulled up short in training yesterday. This was before Juventus’ Coppa Italia quarterfinal matchup with Lazio on Thursday night.
He stated, “When the players have been back for a lengthy period of time, I think of Chiesa out for ten months or Paul [Pogba] for six months, since July 23, they are battling because they have to restart a car that has been standing still for a lengthy period of time.
“Pogba did a good workout during the week. Then he had some pain: the engine needs to settle down and there it takes time, as happened with Chiesa.”
He added, “Maybe in 2-3 months, he’ll be in optimal condition.”
