Paul Pogba plays first game of season in Juventus derby win
Paul Pogba made his first Juventus appearance since rejoining the club last summer in a derby win over Torino.
The midfielder’s last game had been Manchester United’s 4-0 defeat at Liverpool on 19 April 2022, 315 days ago, when he suffered a calf injury.
Pogba, 29, then injured his knee shortly after re-signing for Juve on a free in July and had to have surgery.
The France international came on midway through the second half of Tuesday’s 4-2 victory.
It was his first appearance for Juventus since 2015-16 when he left for United in an £89m deal.
Juventus had to come from behind twice to beat their Turin rivals.
Yann Karamoh gave Torino the lead, with Juan Cuadrado levelling before Antonio Sanabria put the visitors 2-1 ahead.
Danilo’s header in first-half injury-time pulled Juve level.
Three minutes after Pogba’s introduction, Bremer headed them into the lead and Adrien Rabiot added a late fourth.
