The Manchester United midfielder has been left out of the latest international squad along with Tottenham’s Tanguy Ndombele.
Paul Pogba has been left out of the France squad after testing positive for coronavirus, Didier Deschamps has confirmed.
Paul Pogba had been named in the world champions’ squad for upcoming fixtures against Croatia and Sweden but has now been forced out of consideration for selection.
Speaking at his press conference after the squad announcement, Deschamps said
“I was led, at the very last minute, to make a change in the list. Paul Pobga was on this list. Unfortunately for him, he took a test yesterday, which turned out positive. So at the last moment, I had to replace him with Eduardo Camavinga”.
Pogba has been replaced in Deschamps’ squad by Rennes midfielder Camavinga, while international team-mate Tanguy Ndombele of Tottenham also misses out.
It means Pogba will have to spend 14 days in isolation – meaning he will miss the start of Man Utd’s pre-season preparations, which begin next week following their extended 2019-20 season as they reached the Europa League semi-finals.
