The French midfielder has his first appearance for the Bianconeri this season since returning from Manchester United.

Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba finally made his debut for the club this season following his return from Manchester United last summer. The 29-year-old Frenchman featured as a substitute for the Bianconeri in Tuesday night's 4-2 comeback win over local neighbors Torino, ending a prolonged spell without playing in a competitive game. 

Pogba had not played an official match since his Manchester United days which goes as far back as April 2022. After running down his contract at Old Trafford, the French midfielder moved back to Turin on a free transfer, but failed to feature for the club in the first part of the season due to a meniscus injury. Despite deciding against having immediate surgery in order to stand a chance of being named in the national team squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, the player was overlooked by Didier Deschamps.

After watching the French national team register a runners-up finish in Qatar, Pogba was called up for the first time in January by Juventus to feature against Monza in Turin. However, the former United star was not used in the 2-0 defeat, and subsequently suffered a new flexor injury just a few days after. The French star has since been on a recovery journey and, on Tuesday, he made his first appearance this season, coming off the bench at minute 67 to replace Enzo Barrenechea in the derby della Mole at the Allianz Stadium.

The night's affair ended on a positive note for Paul Pogba and his Juve teammates as they were able to secure a vital 4-2 victory after conceding the game's opener. Yann Karamoh opened the scoring after barely 100 seconds into the game before Juan Cuadrado got the equalizer in the 16th minute. Antonio Sanabria restored Torino's lead in the 43rd minute but Danilo ensured that hosts were level before the half-time break. Former Torin defender Bremer and Adrien Rabiot eventually sealed the win for Max Allegri's men.

Despite their 15 points deduction, Juventus are only six points behind 6th placed Atalanta and nine points behind fifth placed AS Roma. The Bianconeri will take on the latter in an epic encounter this week and the result could be huge as far as the race for a European spot is concerned.
