The manager of Juventus, Maximilliano Allegri, has expressed his “sorry” for Paul Pogba but has stated that he must “wait for the ruling” before providing a comprehensive evaluation.
After an earlier test this week revealed that Pogba had significantly elevated levels of testosterone in his blood, the football club has decided to continue its provisional suspension of the player.
If the France international, who is now 30 years old, is found guilty, he may receive a suspension that ranges from two to four years.
Allegri expressed his sorrow by saying, “I am sorry for Pogba.”
“A process is currently being carried out, there are individuals engaged, and it is appropriate to wait until the conclusion of the procedures. He has been placed on indefinite suspension, [so] let’s wait for the verdict, and after that, I will be able to clarify what the implications are for Juventus.
“Paul will not be with us when we play Lazio or [the game after that], which will be played at Sassuolo. After that, we will see what happens. But for the time being, we need to keep our attention fixed on the players we already have.
Pogba’s year to forget was filled with tears and problems in Turin, and he even pondered resigning over a blackmail plan.
Allegri was also questioned by the Italian media over the lawsuit that was filed against the club by former club captain Leonardo Bonnuci. Bonnuci is seeking damages for an alleged failure of the club to offer proper facilities to train in, which he claims “humiliated” him. Allegri responded to the questions by saying that he was aware of the complaint.
“I wish him good luck for his career on and off the field,” he said of the 36-year-old player who transferred to Union Berlin this summer. “I hope he has a lot of success.”
“The soap operas are broadcast on Canale 5, which is an Italian television channel, but I’m not very interested in watching them. Bonucci joined a club that will compete in the Champions League after making the move.
“There is nothing else that I can contribute.”
These are the most recent legal troubles that are plaguing the Old Lady, who were penalized ten points during the previous season as a result of a hearing into the club’s prior transfer dealings and are currently serving a season-long suspension from European competition for violating the Financial Fair Play regulations. These are the most recent legal issues that are plaguing the Old Lady.
On Saturday, Allegri’s team will play home to Lazio in Serie A action, and they will be hoping to continue their perfect start to the season.
