Paul Pogba urged to GIVE UP some of his wages as Juventus injury hell continues

March 15, 2023

Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba has been urged to waive some of his wages as the midfielder struggles to stay fit.

The Frenchman missed the entire first half of this season at the Allianz Stadium, having joined Juve in the last summer transfer window.

The Italians had been hopeful he would become their new midfield leader, but Pogba has now played a grand total of just 35 minutes in the 2022/2023 season.

After suffering a new injury that could keep him out for a month, La Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Nino Minoliti argues the midfielder should waive some of his big money earnings.

He writes, as quoted by Football Italia:

“Since he has played the pittance of 35 minutes this year, he could at least waive the bonuses in his contract, as the club has already asked him to do, without obtaining any progress.

“There is no demand that he suspend his salary, as the great Fernando Redondo did when he moved from Real to AC Milan and was immediately stopped by a serious injury. Nor that he plays at the contractual minimum, as Damiano Tommasi decided, at Roma, returning from a long lay-off.

“Or that he leaves a month’s salary of €250,000 as Mario Mandzukic did, again at AC Milan and in recent times. But a sign, a move, a gesture of honour, as they would have once said, would be desirable and also – allow us Pogba – due.

“Of course, for practical purposes, it wouldn’t change much because 2023 is now gone and reducing his salary wouldn’t turn back the clock. But for the future, yes it would.”

Pogba reportedly makes around 8m euros a season at the club, and he remains one of their highest earners.

The club is not happy that he can barely play, and there is a possibility that his deal might be terminated in the summer, even though club officials have publicly denied that they intend to do this.
