France head coach, Didier Deschamps, has warned Paul Pogba that he must be fully fit to be part of his squad for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
Pogba faces a race against time to be fit for the tournament as he is expected to be out of action for between 40 and 60 days following surgery on a meniscus injury.
Deschamps has now confirmed that the Juventus midfielder will only make his final squad for Qatar if he is in optimal condition.
“He will not come just because he is a ‘framework’.
“If he has not played before and is not in top form, it is useless. He himself does not want it,” the 53-year-old manager stated after naming his squad for upcoming Nations League matches.
