France coach: Pogba will participate in the World Cup

Didier Deschamps, coach of the French national football team, expressed his confidence once again that Paul Pogba will play a prominent role with the national team in the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, despite his absence from the stadiums at the beginning of the new season due to injury.

"He will be present and will participate in the World Cup," he said.

Pogba suffered from a knee problem during the pre-season after returning to Juventus from Manchester United on a free transfer.

He was expected to undergo surgery, which might have squandered his chance to participate in the 2022 World Cup, but he chose treatment instead of surgery in the hope of a faster return to the stadiums.

Pogba is expected to participate again alongside Angolo Kante in the midfield of the French national team during the World Cup, which begins in November, knowing that Chelsea's Kante has also suffered from injury problems in recent seasons.

"We are talking about two prominent players with great experience and leadership capabilities," Deschamps said about the pair, in statements to the newspaper "Le Parisien".
