Italy’s National Anti-Doping Tribunal (TNA) accepted the request of the Anti-Doping Prosecutor’s Office to hand out the four-year ban on Paul Pogba – which is the standard length of ban under the World Anti-Doping Code (WADA).

The ban starts from when Paul Pogba first tested positive, so the France international is banned until August 2027. He will be 34 years old when the ban stops, raising doubts over whether his career will continue after that.

According to Sky in Italy, Paul Pogba will appeal against this decision to the Court of Arbitration of Sport (CAS) in Lausanne. Should Pogba take the ruling to CAS to judge on, then WADA will appeal against that. A final judgement could end up at the Swiss courts. Juventus are not commenting.

Pogba ban: How did we get here?

The 30-year-old Juventus player was suspended as a precaution in September 2023 after being found positive for testosterone metabolites last August, following Juventus’ game at Udinese on August 20. The France international did not play in the Serie A match but was on the Juventus bench.

He later made substitute appearances for Juventus against Bologna on August 27 and Empoli on September 3, before his suspension was announced.

Sky Sports News reported in October that Paul Pogba would fight to clear his name, after testing positive for Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) – a compound that promotes the production of hormones in the body including testosterone. Pogba’s agent Rafaela Pimenta insisted “Paul never wanted to break the rules”.
