Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba is expected to be ruled out for five weeks but will not undergo knee surgery that could have ruled him out of the World Cup, his club said on Tuesday. The France international, who returned to Juventus this summer after six years at Manchester United, will receive “five weeks of conservative therapy”, a club spokesman told AFP. Pogba, 29, injured his meniscus in his right knee during a training session with Juventus on the club’s pre-season tour last month.

He sought the advice of several specialists during treatment and to determine whether surgery was needed.

Pogba will miss the start of the Serie A season starting on August 13, but could return in mid-September.
