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 Cameroon international is forbidden from partaking in any football activities during his suspension.

Ajax intend to appeal the suspension

The doping violation, which Ajax claim is accidental, sees Onana banned for 12 months starting today (February 5).

An Ajax statement claims it is accidental  and offered their explanation for the failed drug test. “On the morning of October 30, Onana was feeling unwell,” He wanted to take a pill to ease the discomfort. Unknowingly, however, he took Lasimac, a drug that his wife had previously been prescribed, 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.”

Onana’s ban was announced on the same day UEFA confirmed Sebastien Haller will not be able to feature for Ajax in the Europa League this season.

 

Haller has been denied the chance of playing in the Europa League due to Ajax’s error

The Dutch giants’ record signing, who joined from West Ham last month, was not included in Ajax’s squad list for the Europa League when it was submitted earlier this week.

It was a huge error which Ajax investigated to check whether the fault was theirs, UEFA’s or the Dutch FA’s, but it appears the club themselves were to blame as Haller’s absence from the squad has now been confirmed.

Their statement on the Haller issue read: “UEFA has informed Ajax that Sébastien Haller will definitely not be available in the UEFA Europa League for the rest of the 2020/2021 season”
