Paul Pogba’s return to Juventus has already run into trouble after the club revealed he had injured his meniscus.
Pogba made his first Juve appearance in six years in a 2-0 win over Mexican side Chivas Guadalajara in a friendly in Las Vegas on Friday.
“Following the pain reported in his right knee, Paul Pogba was subjected to radiological investigations which revealed a lesion of the lateral meniscus [a shock absorbing pad of cartilage in the knee],” the club reported.
