UEFA Bans Finland Midfielder Roman Eremenko For Cocaine

0

Finland midfielder Roman Eremenko has been banned for two years after he tested positive for cocaine, UEFA said Friday.

Traces of cocaine, which is considered a banned stimulant, were found in a sample Eremenko gave after playing for CSKA Moscow in a Champions League game against Bayer Leverkusen in September.

The result of that game, a 2-2 draw, will not be affected by Friday’s ruling even though Eremenko scored CSKA’s second goal.

The two-year ban is backdated to Oct. 6, the date Eremenko was provisionally suspended.

”The club and the player intend to appeal this decision,” CSKA said in a statement on its website. ”Further comments will be given once we receive the full text of the decision.”
