The body governing football, FIFA is reportedly set to suspend Juventus midfielder, Paul Pogba from anything related to football both off and off the field.

The midfielder could face a minimum of two years and a maximum of four years. According to the body, players can be banned for two or four years, which is subject to appeal and a reduction or suspension, if found to have violated its anti-doping regulations, depending on whether it can be proven that the rule violation was intentional.
