Paul Pogba banned from football – level 1

05-03-2024 15:00

Paul Pogba is a famous football player. Now, he is in trouble. He cannot play for four years. Officials say that he must stop.

Pogba fails a test for drugs last year. The test shows too much testosterone. He is 30 years old. He says that he does not want to take drugs.  But it is hard to prove. If he cannot prove it, it can have an impact on his football career.

Pogba plays for Juventus. He wins the World Cup with France. But he has some problems with injuries. He is not good all the time. Sometimes he plays well but sometimes not.

Difficult words: fail (to make a mistake or not be good at something you want to achieve), prove (to show that something is true), career (a job which you do for a long time).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
