Paul Pogba has been dropped from the Juventus squad for their Europa League Round of 16 game against Freiburg for disciplinary reasons. He reported late to training on Wednesday, in a breach of club rules, and will not play any part in their mid-week game as a result.
The midfielder only recently made his second debut for the club after rejoining them in the summer. An injury to his knee and further complications prevented him from playing for all this time. He made his first appearance since signing for Juventus again on February 28, in the Turin derby.

The France international also made an appearance off the bench against Roma in the following game. But, he has already started attracting attention for more wrong reasons now.
While Paul Pogba will miss the game against Freiburg, he is expected to be back in contention for their game this weekend against Sampdoria.
As things stand, Juventus are fighting to get back to European spots following their 15-point deduction. They have been playing well following the horrific start to the season. And if they can keep up their form, they might make it back in spite of their punishment.
The Bianconeri are still one of the favourites to win the Europa League, which also features Manchester United, Sevilla, Arsenal and Roma fighting for the title.
