But the midfielder aggravated it during the first half and has now been diagnosed with a Grade II lesion to the right femoral bicep.
According to statement on the Juventus website:
Paul Pogba this afternoon underwent an MRI scan after coming off midway through the first half of last night’s Champions League match with Borussia Dortmund in Germany.
The scan revealed a grade two myotendinous junction tear of his biceps femoris. He is expected to return to competitive action within the next 50 days.
A fifty day timetable means that Pogba will miss both legs of next month’s Champions League quarter-finals as well as the first leg of the semi-final, should Juventus progress, which takes place on May 5.
If Monaco beats Juve in the quarter-finals, and if Juve have already wrapped up another Serie A title by then, I wonder if they will shut down Pogba, and give one of the best young talents in football the whole summer to recover?
