TURIN, Italy - Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba is likely to miss the rest of the season after the club confirmed on Monday (May 15) that he had sustained a thigh injury during their 2-0 triumph over Cremonese in Serie A on Sunday.
The Frenchman has struggled with multiple injuries this season and lasted a little over 20 minutes before he injured himself again, leaving the field in tears.
The 30-year-old World Cup winner has played only 161 minutes in total for Juve this season.
According to a club statement, Pogba has been diagnosed with a low-grade lesion of the rectus femoris muscle in his left thigh.
While the club did not provide a specific timeline for Pogba’s return, SportMediaset reported that injuries of similar severity typically require a recovery period of around 20 days.
Juve’s final match of the season is scheduled for June 4 at Udinese in Serie A, making it unlikely that Pogba will return this season.
