Two MSL players suspended over doping charges
The unnamed duo face a ban up to four years under the 2015 AFC Anti-doping Code. The previous Malaysian footballer to fail an anti-doping test was Kelantan’s Zamri Ramli after the 2013 FA Cup final against Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT).
In recent years, other Malaysian sports personalities have been suspended for various anti-doping offences.
Then world no.1 badminton star Lee Chong Wei was handed a back-dated eight-month suspension in 2015, ten-time Mr. Universe Sazali Samad was slapped with a four-year ban last year while Wushu Tai Cheau Xuen exponent received a four-month ban following the 2014 Asian Games.
