Juventus boss Allegri feels ‘sorry’ for Pogba over doping suspension


Juventus manager Maximilliano Allegri feels “sorry” for Paul Pogba over his doping suspension but says he must “wait for the ruling” to give a full assessment.

Pogba remains provisionally suspended from football after a drugs test found elevated levels of testosterone in his system earlier this week.

If the 30-year-old France international is found guilty, he could face a ban of between two and four years.

“I am sorry for Pogba,” Allegri said.

“A procedure is underway, there are people involved and it is right to wait for the end of the proceedings. He has been suspended, [so] let’s wait for the ruling and then I will be able to say what changes for Juve.

“Paul will not be with us against Lazio and [the following game at] Sassuolo and then we’ll see. Right now, however, we have to stay focused on the players we have”.
