Toure fined 6 weeks' wages over failed doping test

BY foxsports • November 8, 2011

Kolo Toure has been fined six weeks' wages by Manchester City over the failed dope test that led to the Ivory Coast defender's six-month suspension from all soccer.

City says ''Kolo accepts the decision and he and the club now wish to draw a line under this matter and focus on the season ahead.''

Toure has played five times since his suspension ended Sept. 2 for taking what he said were his wife's diet pills. He has made two substitute appearances for the leaders in the Premier League this season.
