Former Chelsea targets, others support Paul Pogba over four-year ban for doping

Paulo Dybala, Dusan Vlahovic and Weston McKennie were among the first players to comment on Paul Pogba’s latest Instagram post, supporting the French midfielder after a four-year ban for doping.

Former Pogba teammates Dybala, Leandro Paredes and Juan Cuadrado showed their support for the 2018 France World Cup winner on Thursday by commenting on the latest Instagram post where Pogba reacted to a four-year ban from football imposed by the Italian anti-doping tribunal.

Dybala wrote a message in Spanish, which means, “I love you, brother.”

The Argentinean striker and Pogba only spent one season together at Juventus in 2015-16 but have remained close friends.

Pogba joined Manchester United in 2016 and returned to Turin in 2022, months after Dybala’s departure.

Other current Pogba teammates did the same, specifically Vlahovic, McKennie and Pogba’s compatriot Adrien Rabiot. More will come in the next few hours while the French midfielder prepares to file an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
