For the first time, the French coach acknowledged Paul Pogba’s positive test, for which he has also been temporarily suspended.
“I was very surprised, I don’t have all the elements,” he responded to the announcement of Paul Pogba’s positive test after the match against Germany. “I have communicated with him by message and we will discuss more in the coming days.”
“ I can’t imagine that, knowing him, compared to everything he has in his head, I still remember certain discussions about the vaccine and Covid… After that, the material is there, unless there are second opinions… It knowing why and how I don’t think he knows himself. It’s hard for him. I have always supported him, and this new negative fact makes it even more so (after his injuries, the extortion attempt he was the target of or the family problems).”
“It’s something very heavy that falls on him,” he admits without adding more. It’s sad for us and the whole group that knows him. It adds up for him. I will support him and he has the strength and character to get through these very difficult times.”
