Paul Pogba has received this Thursday the worst of the news, when confirming his sanction for doping . The Anti-doping Court of Italy has decided to sanction to the French midfield player with four years without playing, that is what asked the fiscalía. This will mean definitely the goodbye of the 'crack' to the football of elite, since it will fulfil 31 years in a pair of weeks, and when it finish him the punishment will have already almost 35. Without having competed in so much time and with this age, the normal is that the Frenchman do not go back to play to the maximum level.

It is necessary to remember that the positive of the still mediocampista of the Juventus of Turín arrived on 20 August, after the duel between the juventinos and the Udinese. The international 'bleu' gave positive to the hormone Dhea, testosterone, and after being separated by doping momentáneamente went back to give positive in the contraanálisis. Later it arrived the trial, in which he defended ensuring that it took this substance by error, something that is seen that it has not served him like excuse. The fiscalía gave him the option to accept two years of sanction if it declared guilty, but denied and now his punishment will be the double.

Pogba, more potential and 'highlights' that performance

With all this remains confirmed, therefore, that Pogba goes to become one of the big "what could be and did not go" of the recent history of the football. The French always has had the conditions to be one of the three better midfield players of the world during all his career, but by performance very few times has become it. His World-wide 2018 with France was very good, the same that his first stage in the Juve, arriving even to a final of Champions League that finish winning the FC Barcelona. But after leaving Turín in 2016 by the Manchester United, his career gave a bajón and became a too irregular footballer, more than momentazos 'top' that of seasons to the highest level.

It is evident that the career of the Frenchman has been very good, but the feeling is that by potential could have it been even more. A half of more than 1,90 m with the individual quality of a 'jugón' of 1,75 m is not easy to see and Paul had it. Had physical, a lot of technician, a big shot, arrival to goal, goal, good vision of game... When it was centred and fine, in summary, was a midfield player of period, but the reality is that during his more than 10 years of professional path has gone through too many altibajos and has not attained to give the stellar level that by qualities would have to have given.

Madrid and Barça wanted to Pogba

The Real Madrid and the FC Barcelona, among others, were prendados of Pogba, and looked for ficharle in more than an occasion. However, the United did not put at all easy his exit when both groups were to by him, and at the end could not give the traspaso. The time has showed that culés and madridistas surely esquivaron a 'bullet' important, but still like this had been spectacular to see if somebody with so much quality could have exploded definitively in one of the two 'giant' of the Spanish football. Never it will know what would have happened and now the player already only can mentalizarse that by his fault the end of his career already has arrived.
