Ajax star handed 12-month doping ban

Ajax Amsterdam goalkeeper Andre Onana has been suspended for 12 months by UEFA after failing an out of competition drug test.

The Cameroon international has been suspended for a period of 12 months, effective from 5 February, after he tested positive for having traces of the forbidden substance Furosemide in his urine during a test taken in October 2020.

Ajax have confirmed that the club will appeal the 24-year-old's suspension and claimed that the former FC Barcelona academy star had accidentally ingested the medicine prescribed to his wife rather than his own.

UEFA bans Andre Onana for twelve months

The disciplinary body of the European football association, UEFA, has imposed a suspension of 12 months on Andre Onana for a doping violation. After an "out of competition" check on October 30 last year, the goalkeeper found the substance Furosemide in his urine. The suspension is effective from today and applies to all football activities, both national and international.

On the morning of October 30, Onana was feeling unwell. He wanted to take a pill to ease the discomfort. Unknowingly, however, he took Lasimac, a drug that his wife had previously been prescribed. Onana’s confusion resulted in him mistakenly taking his wife's medicine, ultimately causing this measure to be taken by UEFA against the goalkeeper. Furthermore, the disciplinary body of the football association has stated that Onana had no intention of cheating. However, the European Football Association believes, on the basis of the applicable anti-doping rules, that an athlete has a duty at all times to ensure that no banned substances enter the body.

Onana and Ajax will appeal the decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

Managing director Edwin van der Sar: “We explicitly renounce performance-enhancing drugs, we obviously stand for a clean sport. This is a terrible setback, for Andre himself but certainly also for us as a club. Andre is a top goalkeeper, who has proven his worth for Ajax for years and is very popular with the fans. We had hoped for a conditional suspension or for a suspension much shorter than these twelve months, because it was arguably not intended to strengthen his body and thus improve his performance. ”

It's a hard case to overturn.It's really hard to claim ignorance in this case.
As a top performing athlete,you are to check every drug before ingesting it.

What a Pity!

If men will Ban a man for breaking the rules of the game, then imagine what will be for all who disregard the Free Gift of Salvation.
There is No room for appeal on that side!

In this Journey of Life , there are decisions or actions that we wanna take, that may look harmless on the surface but will End us up in Destruction.
That is why we must be Watch and Pray and also flee from all appearances of Evil.

The End is at Here! Are u Prepared?

I see his career ending because of this, I see clubs avoiding him because he's an African, I see him struggling to get a good club. This I have seen.

What a world we live in!

What is illegal today become legal tommorow.

Some years ago, Mary Jane was a prohibited type of herbal drugs, where anyone who used the substance would be subjected to an erroneous judgement.

No one would have believed that such substance like Marijuana could be legalized.

It is a world on transit.

This is unfortunate. They might overturn it if Ajax can prove he reported to the club when he realized he accidentally took medicine recommended to his wife?
