Defiant Paul Pogba breaks his silence on injury-plagued season

‘I won’t give up, I won’t be beaten’: Defiant Paul Pogba breaks his silence on injury-plagued return to Juventus after suffering a season-ending setback… but the Frenchman stresses he will soon ‘return to top form’

  • Paul Pogba has given fans an update on his condition after being injured again
  • The Juventus midfielder’s season has been brought to a premature conclusion
  • Pogba has made just 10 appearances this season after recurring injury issues

Paul Pogba has revealed he ‘won’t give up’ on Juventus after suffering another injury that will leave him sidelined for the remainder of the current campaign.

The Frenchman’s season was brought to a premature end during Juventus’ recent 2-0 Serie A victory against Cremonese as he limped off with a low-grade thigh injury just 21 minutes into the match.

The midfielder was making his first start in 13 months at the Allianz Stadium, however, will now have to wait until the start of pre-season for his next outing.

Pogba appeared emotional in the immediate aftermath of his latest setback, but has conveyed a message of defiance on Instagram where he explained his feelings on what has so far been a nightmare return to Italy.

The 30-year-old World Cup winner gave a rare update to his 58.2million followers on the social media platform, stating: ‘Hello to everyone, I think this is the right time to express myself after a long period of silence.

‘First of all, let me recap my season, which has been very, very complicated, with problems both on and off the field. As you know, it has been truly difficult for me and what happened was tough, above all mentally.

‘I tried to take solace in what I love: playing football, and working on the pitch, but that was not possible because I had a lot of bad luck physically. Now all I can do is be patient, but already today, I feel better mentally,’ he added.

‘First of all, thanks to God, we must try to be positive and have faith. Thanks also to you the fans, thanks to the stadium crowd, the club, who always supported and accompanied me. 

‘It is thanks to you that I have been able to keep my morale up, you push me to return as soon as possible, to the best of my abilities.’

‘I learned a great deal from this year, and I think everything that happened will help me come back stronger. Thank you to all of you for your support,’ stated Pogba.

‘Mentally, and physically, I will do my best to get back in top form, so I can help my team and club, and win a trophy, because that is what I came here for.

‘So, I just wanted to tell you that I won’t give up, I won’t be beaten. I will give my all. Thank you again to everyone,’ he finished.

Pogba’s latest injury is expected to require a 20-day rehabilitation period and the club will unlikely attempt to reduce this further with just three matches remaining in the Serie A season.

The attacking midfielder was expected to bring star quality to Massimiliano Allegri’s underperforming side, but has instead been a costly absentee for the majority of the season.

The former Manchester United midfielder has so far cost Juventus £53,000-a-minute having made just 10 appearances all season.
