Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba is set for another spell on the sidelines after suffering a thigh injury while taking free kicks in training.
The Frenchman will miss the start of his national team’s Euro 2024 qualifying campaign, as he is expected to be out for about three weeks.
Pogba missed Juventus’ recent 4-2 win over Sampdoria, after being dropped for their Europa League victory over Freiburg last week.
Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri revealed that Pogba felt a twinge in his adductor while taking free kicks, and a subsequent medical test showed he had suffered a low-grade tear to his right thigh adductor.
The French midfielder also didn’t stop for photos outside training as he wasn’t in the right headspace he claimed.

Pogba has only made two substitute appearances since rejoining Juventus from Manchester United last summer, with the first of those coming on 28 February.
