Paul Pogba’s anti-doping hearing has been moved from January 18 to an unspecified date, according to a report by the AFP yesterday.
The report adds that Italy’s anti-doping tribunal accepted a demand from the Juventus midfielder’s lawyers. Neither the tribunal nor 30-year-old Pogba’s representatives wanted to make a comment when contacted.
The France and former Manchester United playmaker faces a potentially lengthy ban following the hearing at the National Anti-Doping Organization, NADO, tribunal in Rome.
Prosecutors called for Pogba to be banned for four years following his provisional suspension in September. He could cut his requested ban in half if he demonstrates that he did not intentionally dope.
