Didier Deschamps, France French team

Paul Pogba does not see the end of the tunnel. On May 14, the Juventus Turin midfielder suffered an injury to his left thigh against Cremonese (2-0, 35th day of Serie A), yet another injury that permanently ruled out the 30-year-old player from the last straight line of the 2022-2023 season. Already away from the field for several months due to a knee injury, the 2018 world champion will have played only ten games in all competitions during this exercise, for only six Serie A matches.

Logically, the former resident of Manchester United does not appear in the list retained by the coach of the France team, Didier Deschamps, for the two matches against Gibraltar (June 16) and Greece (June 19) counting for the qualifiers for the 2024 European Championship. Invited to a press conference this Wednesday, the tricolor manager nevertheless did not escape a question about the dark period crossed by Seine-et-Marnais. “DD” paid tribute to him while crossing his fingers for the Turinese to quickly return to 100%.

“He has the ability to come back”

“I talked a lot with him. He had a very, very difficult season, with repeated injuries. He had another problem. He has the ability to come back. He was a fundamental player for the France team for years. Will he be? He will do everything. I do not have the answer. I wish him, for the France team too. He wasn’t there at the World Cup. Others took over. I hope he can fix all his problems and go back to normal preparation, on another season, and regain his athletic ability, which he is able to do on the pitch with and without the ball.
