Paul Pogba, a midfield player for Juventus, has been suspended from football for four years due to a doping offense.

After a drugs test revealed that the former Manchester United player had high amounts of testosterone in his system, he was given a temporary suspension in September.

Pogba, a 30-year-old international for France, underwent a random test following Juventus’ opening game of the season on August 20.

Pogba will appeal the ruling of Italy’s national anti-doping tribunal (Nado), according to information provided to BBC Sport.

In October, Nado provided a second sample that corroborated the failed drugs test, and the anti-doping prosecutor’s office had asked for a four-year penalty.

With the suspension retroactive to the day of the failed test, Pogba will not be allowed to play until 2027, when he would be 33, according to the verdict.

It is known that Pogba thinks he accidentally took any prohibited substances.

“What is certain is that Paul Pogba never wanted to break a rule,” Rafaela Pimenta, Pogba’s agent, stated at the time of the original ban.

Athletes’ endurance is increased by the hormone testosterone.

When forbidden non-endogenous testosterone metabolites substances the body does not naturally create from testosterone were discovered in the test, Nado claimed Pogba had broken the regulations, even if the findings were “consistent with the exogenous [external] origin of the target compounds.”
