Nasri handed six-month doping ban
Former Arsenal and Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri has been banned for six months for a doping offence, Uefa said Tuesday. The disciplinary board of European football's ruling body found the Frenchman "guilty of using a prohibited method in accordance with the World Anti-Doping Agency prohibited list". Nasri's lawyer said the case was the result of a drip treatment the player took at a Los Angeles clinic after falling ill and vomiting while on holiday in 2016. The former France international was playing for Sevilla on loan from City at the time. Uefa gave detail of the case last month when it said it turned down a request for Nasri in February last year to be retroactively granted a therapeutic use exemption. Nasri took his case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport which dismissed the appeal in December, allowing Uefa to proceed with a disciplinary case against him. The 30-year-old, who won the last of his 41 international caps in 2013, rejoined City at the end of his loan last July and was sold to Turkish club Antalyaspor in August. He left my mutual agreement at the end of January and is now a free agent. Nasri’s lawyer could not immediately be reached for comment.
