Juventus docs face 3 month ban for doping offenses
TURIN, Italy — The Italian Olympic Committee’s anti-doping commission has recommended that two doctors with soccer club Juventus be banned for three months for doping violations.
Bartolomeo Goitre and Luca Stefanini stand accused of breaking Italy’s anti-doping code, a note on CONI’s Web site said on Thursday.
In October the pair were held responsible for Italy captain Fabio Cannavaro failing a doping test. Cannavaro was given medicine containing cortisone after he was bitten by a mosquito, but failed to submit the required extenuating circumstances form.
