3 scenarios for Pogba’s treatment of knee cartilage injury after returning to Turin today
French international Paul Pogba returned to the Italian city of Turin after undergoing a medical examination under the supervision of a specialist who had previously performed surgery on Swedish star Zlatan Ibrahimovic, in order to discuss the optimal solution for treatment of the lateral meniscus in his right knee, which he sustained during a training session in Los Angeles before more From a week ago.
According to the Italian “Sky Sport” network, Paul Pogba returned to Turin on a private plane after the club decided not to perform knee surgery in the United States until more than one specialist was presented.
The report indicated that Juventus’ fears are represented in his absence from the team for 6 weeks, especially as the club is also seeking to benefit from his services as soon as possible after confirming his absence from the opening of the Italian League next season.
The Sky Sports report stressed that there are three options available for Paul Pogba during the current period, which are.
The first is to try to avoid surgery and only undergo treatment, similar to the same thing he’s received at Manchester United sporadically over the last two seasons, but that’s less likely.
The second would be to remove part of the meniscus, which would keep it out for 1-2 months, but it could damage the knee in the long run and wouldn’t be a complete solution to a recurring problem.
The third is meniscus suturing surgery to solve it once and for all, but risk keeping Pogba on the seam for four to five months, and thus miss out on the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
