With the investigation into his failed drug test now complete, Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba is facing a four-year ban from football.

Pogba initially posted a positive test following a Serie A game with Udinese back on August 20.

Elevated levels of testosterone were discovered in his system at that stage, while a B sample also came back positive in October.

The Anti-Doping Prosecutor’s Office has been looking into the case since then, with the said procedural process running its course. It is understood that a request has been made for Pogba to be hit with a four-year suspension.

Pogba was immediately banned from all football activity once the result of his initial test came back, preventing him from playing any further part in Juve’s 2023–24 campaign.
