Chi­nese player banned 8 months for doping

Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS -

The Asian Foot­ball Con­fed­er­a­tion (AFC) says it banned Shan­dong Luneng player Jin Jing­dao for eight months af­ter he tested pos­i­tive for clen­buterol ahead of an Asian Cham­pi­ons League match.

Jing­dao gave a sam­ple in train­ing be­fore Shan­dong’s 3-1 loss at FC Seoul in the quar­ter­fi­nals in Au­gust.

De­tails of the case will be pub­lished at a later date, the AFC said in a state­ment.

It was un­clear if the 24-yearold Jin’s case in­volved eat­ing con­tam­i­nated meat. Doping cases in­volv­ing clen­buterol in China are of­ten linked to the an­abolic agent be­ing used in live­stock farm­ing.
