Paul Pogba vows to appeal four year ban

Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has vowed to appeal a four year ban slapped on him on Thursday after he was found guilty of doping.

Through a statement, the former Manchester United player noted how heartbroken he is as he swore that he had never taken supplements that violate anti-doping regulations.

“I have today been informed of the Tribunale Nazionale Antidoping’s decision and believe that the verdict is incorrect.

I am sad, shocked and heartbroken that everything I have built in my professional playing career has been taken away from me.

When I am free of legal restrictions the full story will become clear, but I have never knowingly or deliberately taken any supplements that violate anti-doping regulations.

As a professional athlete I would never do anything to enhance my performance by using banned substances and have never disrespected or cheated fellow athletes and supporters of any of the teams I have played for, or against.

As a consequence of the decision announced today I will appeal this before the Court of Arbitration for Sport.” he said

Following his move to Juventus, Pobga has been on the media for all the wrong reasons including a recent fallout with his family over alleged use of black magic on fellow players.
