“Recovery could take a long time.”

Surgeon and specialist Dr. Zanon, Habilita Group’s head of sports medicine, also wanted to comment on the injury of Paul Pogba, the French midfielder for Juventus. And he did so by leaving a brief interview with the microphones of La Gazzetta dello Sport.

It is clear that if after such a long period of time it then came to the operation, the so-called therapies did not have the desired effect.”
