Blatter supports dropping Mexico doping charges

BY foxsports • July 10, 2011

FIFA's president says five Mexico soccer players who tested positive for clenbuterol did so because they ate food that was ''definitely'' contaminated, and he says he backs the decision of the Mexico Football Federation to exonerate the players.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter is in Mexico for Sunday's final of the under-17 World Cup.

The Mexican federation said Friday it would not punish the five players, who tested positive during a training camp in May.

Tour de France champion Alberto Contador also blamed contaminated meat for his positive test for clenbuterol last July.
