It is obvious that UEFA don’t like being criticised and they have made that abundantly clear to Arsenal after Arsene Wenger spoke out about playing against “many doped teams” in his career.
Most recently one of Dinamo Zagreb’s players, Arijan Ademi, was banned for four years after being tested positively for taking an anabolic steroid after playing against Arsenal in the Champions League, and Wenger thinks that Zagreb should have forfeited the game.
UEFA’s very strange rule, which states that only three players are tested after a game, and TWO of them need to be positive for the result to be changed, baffles Le Prof. “Yes, of course. It doesn’t look logical, especially if you control (test) only three.
“It’s a surprising rule. UEFA applies the rule that is planned, but I personally don’t agree with the rule.
“You cannot say ‘okay they had a doped player and the result stands’. That means you basically accept doping.
“I don’t know if I would have the support of anybody, but I came out on that and as a result we had a doping control from UEFA on Friday.
“We had 10 people on Friday to control us.”
So UEFA just randomly decided to give Wenger a drugs control just after the Boss criticized their rules? That all looks a little bit fishy. Let’s hope that they don’t frame one of our players so it looks like we are breaking the rules as well. Didn’t Wenger recently threaten FIFA with a breakaway Team World Cup recently as well?
It sounds like there is a bit of a feud going on at the moment. Where will it all end?
