CFA to probe bone density-reducing drug abuse ploy
Beijing: The Chinese Football Association (CFA) is set to probe the latest drug abuse ploy which can help young players reduce bone density to pass the association`s routine bone tests.
The CFA has been adopting the testing method to crack down on age cheats in the national youth league and the youth national team.
"Although we haven`t received any report for confirmed cases, we will definitely go on probing into the matter," Xinhua news agency quoted CFA official Tang Feng, as saying.
"I just want to warn some coaches and parents that never cheat this way or it will ruin your children`s health," he added.
According to reports, the bone density-reducing drug was used among teenage players in February.
