France coach Didier Deschamps warns Paul Pogba that he won’t be automatically selected for the World Cup

France coach Didier Deschamps has warned Paul Pogba that he needs to be fit and healthy to make France’s squad for the World Cup.

Pogba has been ruled out for almost two months after undergoing surgery on his right knee last week.

The surgeon who performed Pogba’s operation has reportedly revealed he and Juventus doctors agreed on a ‘necessary’ recovery time of eight weeks before the Frenchman could return to first-team training.

Speaking ahead of Nations League games against Austria and Denmark after naming his squad, Deschamps confirmed that Pogba would only make his final World Cup squad if the midfielder was fit and shot .

Deschamps said: “He won’t come just because he’s an ‘executive’.

“If he’s never played before and he’s not in top form, there’s no point. He himself doesn’t want it.

Deschamps was also asked about bizarre claims by Pogba’s brother Mathias accusing the Juventus midfielder of using a wizard to put a spell on PSG and France superstar Kylian Mbappe.

The French boss said: “Everyone is free to believe in what they want. I’m not here to judge, it can help some people feel better.

Pogba also insisted he is holding his own despite recent allegations against him.

The World Cup winner said last week: “The operation went very well, I will recover and come back very, very soon.” I wanted to thank you all for your messages, for your support.

“Know that mentally I’m fine despite all the worries, injury and other issues. Mentally, I’m fine.
