Greek footballer banned for two years for cocaine use
Athens: Greek Super League football club OFI Crete`s goalkeeper Polychronis Vezyridis has been suspended for two years for testing positive for cocaine, the league`s disciplinary committee announced.
Vezyridis, 37, failed two doping tests and during his hearing he insisted that the cocaine was from a pipe he got from his club supporters, reports Xinhua.
Vezyridis said his club fans offered him a pipe to smoke, which he couldn`t refuse, and resulted in the failed test before the AEK Athens-OFI match Feb 26.
