Pogba’s agent releases statement as player is banned for failing anti-doping test



Rafaela Pimenta, the agent to Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, has issued a statement after the player was ‘provisionally’ suspended for failing an anti-doping test.

Pogba was found to have tested positive for a banned substance, testosterone, after their Serie A clash with Udinese.

The ex-Manchester United man has three days in which to respond to the positive test.

Pimenta has issued a statement in response to the news insisting that her client “never wanted to break the rules.”

Per journalist Simon Stone, Pimenta said: “We are waiting for the counter analysis and until then we can’t say anything.

“The certain thing is that Paul Pogba never wanted to break the rules.”
