The captain of Real Madrid, Sergio Ramos, received a check anti-doping by a potent corticoid, the night of victory in the Champions turns on in May 2017, before being acquitted by the UEFA, who considered that his medication was authorized, according to the documents of Football Leaks.
After the final, the player's anti-doping control revealed the presence of dexamethasone, a potent corticosteroid banned by the AMA, except for local administration, Mediapart said, supporting its information in confidential documents. Ramos acknowledged having taken the product, but by intra-articular injection, an argument that persuaded Uefa, who closed the case.
But, according to reports Mediapart, the club's medical services have not properly completed the medical form submitted to the club's UEFAconfused dexamethasone with betamethasone. According to the newspaper, the European body estimated as "very likely that the player and the doctor made an administrative error". The only partial ban on corticosteroids (which reduce fatigue and pain) by the World Anti-Doping Agency is criticized because its detection does not always allow one to distinguish how the product was administered.
Real Madrid denies
Real Madrid has denied that Sergio Ramos has violated the anti-doping rules, as suggested by the German magazine Der Spiegel in the latest revelations of his investigation, entitled "Soccer Filtrations."
The weekly published that Ramos did not pass a test anti-doping after the end of Champions turns on against Juventus in 2017and that the captain of Real Madrid did not follow proper procedures when asked to undergo a doping test after a game in the Spanish league in April this year.
UEFA also issued a statement in which it "vehemently rejected unfounded accusations that it has hidden positive doping results." He indicated that AMA and FIFA have the right to appeal any decision taken by UEFA on doping control issues before the Court of Arbitration for Sport, but no "appealed against". UEFA said the AMA itself officially confirmed that "everything was handled properly by UEFA and in accordance with the code."
