OMG! UEFA Extends Samir Nasri Doping Ban

UEFA have extended the doping ban for Samuel Nasri from 6 to 18 months following an appeal against the original sanction.

In February, Nasri was issued a six month ban for receiving an intravenous treatment at a Los Angeles clinic in breach of the World Anti-Doping Agency's rules.

The LA Clinic posted a picture of Nasri on its facebook and Twitter accounts in December 2016.

And said it provided the midfielder with a drip "to help keep him hydrated and in top health during his busy soccer season".

UEFA's ethics and disciplinary inspector complained the original ban was insufficient and on Wednesday the European governing body extended his suspension to 18 months.

A Uefa statement said: "The Uefa Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body's decision of 22 February 2018 is amended as follows:

"1. The player Samir Nasri is suspended for eighteen (18) months. This suspension will start running on 1 July 2017.

"2. The player Samir Nasri is allowed to return to training, with any football club starting from 1 November 2018."

The ban is dated back to July 1, 2017 even though Nasri has played since then, making eight appearances for Antalyaspor in Turkey between signing in August 2017 and leaving in January this year.

Nasri, who is now a free agent can return to training with any club in November.
