“He has a lot of things on his plate, it is a very difficult time. I will have time to speak to him in the next few days, I have already sent him a message.”

Asked whether he thought Pogba could have knowingly taken a banned substance, the France coach responded: “I can’t imagine it, knowing him he wouldn’t do it. He has a strong head on his shoulders. I remember the discussions we had about the Covid vaccine. But, the substance is in his body and we don’t know how it got there.”
