Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri claims that he has full trust in Paul Pogba’s decision to recover from his meniscus injury.
The French international returned to Turin this summer on a free transfer after he didn’t renew his contract with Manchester United. Unfortunately, Pogba won’t be able to start the new season with Juve just yet.
The midfielder picked up a meniscus injury on his knee during their pre-season training session in the USA. He was supposed to have surgery but after further consultation, Pogba opted for conventional therapy instead.
Many medical experts are concerned with the player’s decision, believing his only doing it to avoid missing the 2022 World Cup.
Some people are speculating that Juve are not happy with Pogba’s decision as without surgery the chance of relapse seems higher. However, the Old Lady’s coach, Massimiliano Allegri reveals that he trusted what his midfielder decided.
Allegri explains that Pogba will have a five weeks of treatment program before he can hopefully return to the pitch.
“I am not a medic, so I don’t know what is best, I just trust what I am told,” Allegri told reporters(via Football Italia).
“There will be these five weeks of treatment and then we hope to have him back as soon as possible.”
