Paul Pogba banned for doping

A Juventus Midfielder, Paul Pogba has been given a four-year ban for doping.

The ban, which starts from when Pogba first tested positive, will end August 2027.

Reacting in a statement on Thursday, he confirmed he will appeal the decision at the Court of Arbitration of Sport (CAS) in Lausanne.

“I am sad, shocked and heartbroken that everything I have built in my professional playing career has been taken away from me.

“When I am free of legal restrictions the full story will become clear, but I have never knowingly or deliberately taken any supplements that violate anti-doping regulations.

“As a professional athlete I would never do anything to enhance my performance by using banned substances and have never disrespected or cheated fellow athletes and supporters of any of the teams I have played for, or against.

“As a consequence of the decision announced today I will appeal this before the Court of Arbitration for Sport,” the statement read.
