Federation wants longer bans for Sofia players
The Bulgarian football federation is calling for an extension of
the three-month bans given to three CSKA Sofia players who tested
positive for banned stimulants.
The Bulgarian Football Union said Thursday it had filed an
appeal with the national Olympic Committee’s disciplinary
commission asking it to revise its decision against Kostadin
Stoyanov, Rumen Trifonov and Todor Yanchev. The players tested
positive for methylhexanamine after domestic league matches last
The federation said it wants longer bans because ”FIFA and UEFA
have announced zero tolerance” for athletes who dope.
