“Luckily now it’s over, he will soon be back on the pitch for his Juve,” said Rafaela Pimenta

“He is enthusiastic. Paul’s superpower is to overcome difficulties with incredible strength and great positivity. There was a moment, a few weeks ago, when he said to me, ‘Rafaela, that’s enough. I don’t want to think about anything anymore , I focus on my knee and recovery because I want to play again.’ And so he did.”

There were serious doubts about whether Pogba would be able to take part in France’s title-defending campaign at the World Cup. However, if he can hit the ground running upon his return to club action, he may still make Didier Deschamps’ squad.
