UEFA has issued its preliminary verdict in the case of Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho, who is accused of doping.
After the match 1/4 finals of the Europa League with Manchester United the Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho took the doping test, which was positive.
Sakho could appeal against UEFA’s decision and to refer for consideration to the doping of the sample, however, the player decided not to challenge the verdict.
