Ajax has reported that goalkeeper Andre Onana has been banned for a doping violation by UEFA for 12 months.
An Ajax statement reads: “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.”
“Onana and Ajax will appeal the decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).”
The club claims that the banned drug Furosemide has been discovered in the urine of the Cameroonian keeper.
They also say they will appeal the ban on the basis that the goalie innocently and unknowingly swallowed the drug.
