French midfielder Paul Pogba will be away again for three weeks from the competition after suffering a new injury in the adductor muscle, which means his absence from the international window for his country, according to what the agency “Agence France Presse” learned from a source close to his club, Juventus, on Monday.
Juventus indicated on its official website that Pogba suffered a first-degree injury to the adductor muscle in the right thigh.
A source in the club told AFP that he would not return until after the international matches and would be out 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 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.
