Mexican goalkeeper banned for two years for doping

Goalkeeper Omar Ortiz of champions Monterrey has been suspended for two years for doping, the Mexican Football Federation (Femexfut) said on Monday.



Mexico City: Goalkeeper Omar Ortiz of champions Monterrey has been suspended for two years for doping, the Mexican Football Federation (Femexfut) said on Monday.

The 34-year-old tested positive for the banned steroids oxymetholone and masteron at a first division match on March 6.

“The player is sanctioned with two years’ suspension of his sporting activities and as a consequence cannot take part in any competition or activity under the auspices of the federation,” Femexfut said in a statement.

The start of the ban is back-dated to April 9 when ‘The Cat’ Ortiz was provisionally suspended.

Ortiz tested positive again for the same substances at a South American Libertadores Cup group match on April 29. Monterrey failed to qualify for the knockout phase.
