Astonishing Football Leaks Claim Real Madrid Captain Sergio Ramos Failed Drug Test

The Football Leaks just keep on coming, and keep on exposing how little we as a public have been privy to in football operations. Not content with the revealing of Manchester City’s alleged collaboration with UEFA, as well as evasion of Financial Fair Play laws, alongside recent exposure of Manchester United’s questionable transfer dealings, the reports have now produced their most startling revelation yet.

As published by Der Spiegel, Football Leaks accuse Real Madrid skipper Sergio Ramos of failing a doping test after the 2017 Champions Final, the second of the club’s record-making treble wins in the competition. The Independent follow up the accusation by saying the defender is also ‘accused of obstructing anti-doping officers after a game at Malaga in 2018’.

Los Merengues’ 4-1 victory over Juventus at the end of the 16/17 season created history for the first team ever to win back-to-back European top titles – a wait that endured a quarter of a century. They would go on to win again against Liverpool the following year in Kiev.

Prepare to rolls your eyes frantically as the news that thrusts UEFA once into the spotlight and places even further distrust in the organisation of the football hierarchy, as well as the perceived privileges granted to the so-called ‘elite’.

Sergio Ramos himself has yet to comment on the allegations, – however even the association could be potentially damning. It is alleged that Ramos received an injection of ‘betamethasone’, which is on the list of substances banned by Wada.

An already controversial character, the Spaniard incurred the wrath of a substantial portion of Liverpool with his antics in the most recent Champions League Final, in which he was seen inflicting injuries on both Reds goalkeeper Loris Karius and Mohamed Salah.

Ramos, 32, has been a Real Madrid player for 13 years and has made over 400 appearances.
