Manchester United defender Raphael Varane has offered his support to French compatriot and former Manchester United teammate Paul Pogba.
Pogba is yet to make a competitive appearance for Juventus since leaving Manchester United this summer after suffering a knee injury.
He is also currently embroiled in an extortion investigation involving his brother. Pogba was allegedly held at gunpoint by armed men who demanded €13 million from the player back in March.
Varane said: “Of course I won’t talk about the legal news. He’s a friend of mine. I support him and he faces challenges, including this injury. He has to be okay to come back as soon as possible.”
He continued: “He’s an extraordinary player, we want to see him on the pitch and fulfilled, we want to see him come back as soon as possible and enjoy himself.”
