UEFA has on Friday, November 18, 2016 slammed a two-year ban on CSKA Moscow’s Roman Eremenko.
CSKA Moscow’s midfielder Roman Eremenko has on Friday, November 18, 2016 been hit with a two-year ban by European football governing body (UEFA) after traces of cocaine were discovered in his doping sample.
The Finland international tested positive to cocaine following his performance on September 14, 2016 when CSKA Moscow and Bayer Leverkusen met in the UEFA Champions League duel in which Eremenko got the equalizing goal for the Russian club as the tie ended 2 – 2.
He was later summoned to undergo a doping test by UEFA in which he was tested positive to bad substance, and UEFA has however slammed a two-year ban on him.
It was however announced that the result of the match would stand regardless the hammer nailed on the player.
Meanwhile, the 29-year-old who has played 73 games for Finland has an option to appeal the judgement imposed on him by UEFA. Roman Eremenko was the 2014/15 Russian premier League player of the season.
