CAS to hear Carlos Queiroz appeal on drug-test ban

BY foxsports • September 17, 2010

Former Portugal coach Carlos Queiroz has appealed to sport's highest court after being given a six-month ban for disrupting an anti-doping team testing his players ahead of the World Cup.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport says it has opened Queiroz's case though no hearing date has been set.

Queiroz is prevented from working in Portugal after being suspended this month by the Sports Institute which governs the national anti-doping agency.

The institute ruled Queiroz insulted testers who arrived unannounced early one morning in May before the squad left to play in South Africa.

Portugal's football federation banned Queiroz for one month on a misconduct charge, then fired him last week following poor results.
