Sergio Ramos won’t face disciplinary action over doping claims

Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos will not face disciplinary action over claims he breached doping regulations.

Ramos has strongly denied a doping infraction following a claim that he breached the rules after the 2017 Champions League final.

Ramos was called in by doctors following the 4-1 win over Italian side Juventus in Cardiff, but German magazine Der Spiegel claim that he failed to declare he had taken dexamethasone before the game.

It is legal to take the anti-inflammatory substance, however, UEFA have to be notified prior to any involvement in a fixture and it is now being investigated that was not the case.

Ramos has now reacted to the claims, saying that his reputation is being tarnished and reports are a ‘lie and the Spaniard has been backed by new Madrid boss Santiago Solari recently.

Further reports in Der Spiegel claimed that an unnamed doctor wrote a letter to UEFA saying that he had wrote the wrong drug on the doping report after testing Ramos.

Testers were reportedly told that the Spanish international was taking injections of betamethasone in his left knee and left shoulder rather than dexamethasone which was not declared at the testing stage.
