Morocco player fails drug test

FIFA has provisionally suspended a Morocco international after he failed a drug test.

Blatter: 'Very pleased with the ideas that have evolved'
FIFA president Sepp Blatter has spoken of his desire to improve doping tests.

The player, who has not been named, has until September 4 to tell FIFA whether he would like a hearing.

His A and B samples, which both tested positive for a prohibited substance, were taken after Morocco beat Tanzania 2-1 in a World Cup qualifier in Marrakech on June 8.

A statement on the governing body’s website read: “The chairman of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee has provisionally suspended a Moroccan international footballer for an initial period of 30 days and opened disciplinary proceedings following an adverse analytical finding in relation to a doping control conducted after the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier played in Marrakech, Morocco on 8 June 2013.

“Irrespective of whether or not the player requests a hearing, the player and/or the Moroccan Football Association have until 11 September to submit a statement and all related and supporting documentary evidence.”

Information from the Press Association was used in this report.
