Pogba a doubt for Juventus

Juventus boss Antonio Conte has confirmed that Paul Pogba is in a race against time to be fit for the Cagliari game.

The Frenchman was being tipped to start ahead of Arturo Vidal in the 3-0 win over Atalanta on Sunday, but missed the tie with injury.

“The boy picked up a knock in the match against Palermo and so was already a doubt for Cagliari,” the tactician explained.

“He felt a little discomfort in the final training session before the Atalanta game and that caused a thigh issue.

“I spoke with the club doctor and the player where we decided that he wouldn’t be available for action.

“I just hope that he, a young player who can recover quickly, will be back in action against Cagliari.”

Juventus, Winter Champions, take on the Sardinian outfit on Friday night.
