Footballer faces doping ban for 'moustache cream'

22 January 2016, 08:10

Lausanne - FIFA has asked sport's highest court to impose a two-year ban on a South Korean player who blamed his positive test for a steroid on a moustache-growing cream.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport says FIFA's appeal against the Korea Football Association and Kang Soo-il will be heard on February 5.

The court typically gives verdicts within weeks.

FIFA, which declined to comment on the case, is challenging a shorter sanction given Kang, who accepted a 15-match ban.

Kang's positive test for methyltestosterone was announced hours before he was due to make his South Korea debut in a friendly against the United Arab Emirates last June.

The 28-year-old Jeju United forward said he got the moustache cream as a gift.
