Juventus Set To Terminate Pogba’s Contract Over Doping Scandal

The management of Italian giants, Juventus is set to terminate Paul Pogba’s contract if he is suspended by the Italian football governing body.

According to ESPN report, the Seria A club side  have stopped paying Pogba his €8 million-per-year salary, just as they  have also made the midfielder aware that, if he is suspended, there is a possibility of terminating his contract, which runs until June 2026.

Recall that Pogba has admitted to Juventus that he took some nutritional supplements without knowing they contained testosterone, which led to his positive drug test and the risk of a provisional four-year ban.

Pogba will argue in his defence that he took the supplement without knowing it contained testosterone and even at that the former Manchester United of England player could also face criminal charges, with drug doping being a criminal offence in Italy.

He is waiting for the result of his backup B sample, which should come before the end of the week, but it is expected to be positive.

Pending a trial and testing of a backup B sample, the French midfielder risks a suspension of up to four years.
