Paul Pogba Receives Four-Year Football Ban for Doping Violation

Football star Paul Pogba has been handed a four-year ban from the sport following a positive doping test for testosterone. The ban, which effectively sidelines the Juventus midfielder until August 2027, could potentially mark the end of the 30-year-old French international’s career. Pogba, who has not played for Juventus since September, is expected to appeal the decision.
