Paul Pogba has demonstrated his versatility with the football as the Juventus ace pulled an incredible piece of skill at training once again.

Pogba, who made a return to Juventus this summer after spending six years at Manchester United, could possibly be on the sidelines for a while due to an injury setback.

The Frenchman's first outing for Juve was short-lived as he lasted 45 minutes in his side's 2-0 win over Guadalajara Chivas of Mexico.

Prior to his injury, the 29-year-old France international treated his teammates and the wider sports community to his collection of skills.

In a video posted on Twitter, sighted by Sports Brief, Pogba, clad in the club's tracksuit flawlessly spun the football on his middle finger - which seemed like a pivot as the ball rotated on it before controlling the ball for several seconds with his head.

He is expected to play an integral role in Juventus' pursuit of the Italian Serie A and the Champions League following the club's underwhelming display last season.

Paul Pogba suffers injury setback

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Juventus ace Paul Pogba has suffered an injury setback as the club revealed he would not be travelling with the rest of the squad for a preseason friendly in Dallas.

The Frenchman will effectively miss the clash against Barcelona on Tuesday, July 26, as he undergoes tests to determine the extent of the injury.

He came back to Juventus, a club he initially played for between 2012 and 2016, with lots of enthusiasm and hope, but it seems he will have to wait a while longer to feature for the Turin giants.
