Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has only played one game since returning to Juventus and he is already injured.
The 29-year-old made his second debut for the Old Lady on Friday as the Turin outfit beat Guadalajara 2-0 in Nevada, with Pogba impressing in the centre of the field.
However, according to Gazzetta dello Sport reports, Pogba pulled up in afternoon training on Saturday during an exercise and beckoned the medical team. The midfielder than limped off the training pitch, helped by two staff members, but did give a thumbs up to coach Maximiliano Allegri as he left.
It is a familiar story that will be all too common for Manchester United supporters, who have witnessed the Frenchman miss numerous games over the past three-years while at Old Trafford.
Pogba re-joined Juventus on a free transfer this summer after he declined contract extension talks with the Red Devils.
The 29-year-old initially started for Juventus from 2012-2016 before being linked up again with Man United in a then-world record transfer fee to the English Premier League heavyweights.
However, Pogba’s six-year stint at Man United were inconsistent and turned out a disaster and largely underwhelming as he failed to inspire the team to major success, only winning two minor cup trophies in his first season.
In the last few years, Pogba was decimated by injury problems. From the start of the 2019/20 season until the end of the previous campaign, the 2018 World Cup winner sustained eight different recurring injuries that kept him sidelined.
In total he missed a whopping 72 games due to injury or illness over a period of 33 months.
In the 2019/20 season, Pogba made just 16 Premier League appearances after two separate ankle problems and was forced to miss 40 games in all competitions that season.
Last season, he had another long-stretch on the treatment table from November to February due to a hamstring injury. He then saw his Manchester United career in April by a calf injury.
These persistent injuries were a concern for some Juventus fans upon his Turin return, and Juventus fans will be hoping that his latest blow is nothing serious less than three weeks away from the new Serie A season.
