Soccer: Pogba has knee surgery

France midfielder had been trying to avoid op before World Cup

(ANSA) - ROME, SEP 6 - Juventus said that France midfielder Paul Pobga had surgery on a knee injury on Monday.
    The Turin giants said the World Cup-winner underwent selective external arthroscopic meniscectomy and the operation was a "complete success".
    The 29-year-old, who returned to Juve after a six-year stint at Manchester United in the summer, suffered the injury in July during a pre-season tour of the United States.
    He had been trying to avoid surgery by following a special recovery programme due to fears that an operation would stop him playing at this year's World Cup.
    But the midfielder changed his mind on Monday after trying to run during a training session, sources said. (ANSA).
