CONI wants lifetime ban for Flachi over cocaine

BY foxsports • March 18, 2010

The Italian Olympic Committee's anti-doping prosecutor has recommended that Brescia midfielder Francesco Flachi receive a lifetime ban after testing positive for cocaine a second time.

Flachi failed a drug test after a Serie B game between Brescia and Modena on Dec. 19.

Flachi has already served a two-year ban following a positive test in January 2007 when he played in Serie A with Sampdoria.

The case will now be heard by CONI's in-house anti-doping court.
