AFC has banned Chiangrai United striker Jaja from all soccer-related activity for four years after he violated anti-doping regulations
The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) has banned Chiangrai United striker Jaja from all football-related activity for four years after he violated anti-doping regulations, Asian football’s governing body said on Tuesday.
Jaja Coelho was found guilty of breaking anti-doping rules at his club’s group stage game against Australia’s Melbourne Victory in November, the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) said.
A banned substance was found in the striker’s urine sample, they said, without giving further details.
Chiangrai, known as “The Beetles”, and Melbourne drew the game 2-2.
The Thai side did not advance past the group stage of Asia’s premier club tournament last year, while Melbourne went out in the knockout round to South Korea’s Ulsan Hyundai.
