Pogba To Return To Juventus Squad, Allegri Says

By Chimezie Nebolisa

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegro said midfielder Paul Pogba could make his long awaited return to the pitch in the Serie A clash against Torino on Tuesday after recovering from a number of injuries.

The France international had an operation on a damaged meniscus in September and also missed the World Cup in Qatar with the national team.

The only time Pogba has been part of the squad this season was as an unused substitute in the 2-0 loss against Monza on 29 January.

Allegri in a post-match press conference said: "Pogba will be called up for the derby and will play if necessary. He doesn't have much playing time in his legs, but more than enough.”

"I have spoken to him as I have done with the other players. He must understand that we're at an important stage of the season. He must have the drive to have given his contribution at the end of the season,” he concluded.
