Dispatches to reveal identity of top footballer who tested positive for cocaine

58 posts in this topic

The identity of a top Premier League footballer who tested positive for cocaine will be revealed tonight.

He was later sold by his club in a multimillion pound deal but his new team were not told of the drug test, a TV investigation claims.

The star will be named by Channel 4 show Dispatches as it focuses on the use of recreational and performance-enhancing drugs in football.

The show claims to have discovered the identities of dozens of footballers who have failed drugs tests for cocaine and cannabis.

Their names have been kept secret by the Football Association and their clubs.

It is also claimed 240 drugs tests had to be abandoned between April 2007 and August 2010 after officials turned up at training grounds to discover the players were not there.

The show claims to have official documents that show three former England internationals and one Scottish star faced doping investigations after suspicious levels of testosterone were found in their urine.

All four were later cleared of wrongdoing.

David Howman of the World Anti Doping Agency said the FA needed to be more open about drug testing.

He added: "If you don't, then you are susceptible to an allegation you're hiding something."

The FA said it abides by the World Anti Doping Agency code.

I've been adamant all day it's Hutton. Surely the Carroll/Nolan thing is known by now, after the NOTW bust?

Bloke on one of the Spurs boards is mates with a 01/02-era youth teamer who was in with the East London lot that were coming up at that time. Apparently there was a huge problem with it back then and there are at least 2 at Tottenham now who are still on it in a big way.
