Benevento captain Lucioni fails doping test
Benevento captain Fabio Lucioni has been suspended by Italy's anti-doping authorities after testing positive for a banned substance.
The 29-year-old failed a doping test following his side's 1-0 Serie A defeat to Torino on September 10.
Anabolic steroid clostebol was detected in the defender's sample, according to a statement released by the National Anti-Doping Organisation of Italy.
Lucioni, who joined the club in 2014, is believed to be at risk of a ban of between one and four years.
Neither the player nor the club have commented on the issue.
