DRUG SCANDAL IN FA CUP
After a foreign player playing in the Premier League was found to have used a banned substance, it is said that a local player failed the dope test in the FA Cup last month. The FAM had conducted the random doping testing and this player was tested positive in a match during the later stages of the FA Cup. Not only is the player staring at a two year automatic suspension should the B sample also be positive, question marks have been raised on what action can, should be taken against the team he is representing. If in a league match the team could be punished by docking three points, what will be the situation in the knock out competition. FAM's top brass are neither confirming nor denying that another plyer has been tested positive. Maybe we will hear more of it in the days to follow....
