Andre Onana banned: Ajax goalkeeper handed 12-month suspension from ALL football activities for doping violation

Andre Onana has been handed a 12-month suspension from all football activities having failed an out of competition doping test.
Onana, the Ajax goalkeeper, has been banned by UEFA as they discovered the forbidden substance Furosemide in a urine sample when tested in October 2020.

The doping violation, which Ajax claim is accidental, sees Onana banned for 12 months starting today (February 5) with the Cameroon international forbidden from partaking in any football activities during his suspension.
An Ajax statement confirmed the suspension and offered their explanation for the failed drug test.
“On the morning of October 30, Onana was feeling unwell,” read the statement. “He wanted to take a pill to ease the discomfort. Unknowingly, however, he took Lasimac, a drug that his wife had previously been prescribed.
“Onana’s confusion resulted in him mistakenly taking his wife’s medicine, ultimately causing this measure to be taken by UEFA against the goalkeeper.
“Furthermore, the disciplinary body of the football association has stated that Onana had no intention of cheating. However, the European Football Association believes, on the basis of the applicable anti-doping rules, that an athlete has a duty at all times to ensure that no banned substances enter the body.”
