END OF AN ERA- Paul Pogba has been told he needs to RETIRE with Juventus star now facing ‘four-year ban’

Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has been advised to retire from football if he receives a four-year ban from the sport.Pogba tested positive for the banned substance testosterone after Juventus’ Serie A fixture against Udinese on August 20.The midfielder’s representative, Rafaela Pimenta, subsequently told Sky Sports: “We are waiting for the counter analysis and until then we can’t say anything.”The certain thing is that Paul Pogba never wanted to break the rules.”

Following reports of the positive test, the Italian anti-doping agency, Nado Italia, announced that Pogba was provisionally suspended with immediate effect.A counter-analysis sample has since been checked which, according to Fabrizio Romano, has returned a positive result.

Romano reported: “Paul Pogba has tested doping positive also to backup sample today.”Juventus will now decide how to proceed with his contract as Pogba faces risk of long-term ban.”

An anti-doping tribunal will now determine the charge for the midfielder, and he could be banned from football for up to four years. Meanwhile, according to Sport Witness, Juventus are considering terminating the 2018 World Cup winner’s contract. SPORTbible has contacted Paul Pogba’s representatives for comment.Speaking last month, former Arsenal and France midfielder Emmanuel Petit claimed Pogba should retire if he is hit with a lengthy ban from football.He told Betway (quotes via Goal): “Paul Pogba should definitely retire if he is given a four-year ban. “When you are suspended for that long, you can’t even come to the training ground.”That leaves you going to the gym or the park with no team-mates, no balls, nothing. Four years for a 30-year-old player is a long time.”Petit then went on to claim: “His time at Manchester United didn’t end well, and in France, we think he’s been a disaster since then.”Forget football, forget money, it’s been a disaster for him. He’s completely destroyed. He’s nothing like the Pogba we used to know.”
