Doping in English Premier League

A British doctor March Bonar has been secretly filmed describing how he prescribed banned performance-enhancing drugs to 150 elite sportsmen, including Premier League footballers.

The following sportsman are supposed to be on the list of doped athletes.

Leicester City:

  • Riyad Mahrez
  • N’Golo Kanté
  • Shinji Okazaki
  • Danny Drinkwater

Arsenal:

  • Danny Welbeck
  • Gabriel Paulista

Chelsea FC:

  • Bertrand Traoré
  • Willian
  • Diego Costa

Tottenham Hotspur:

  • Dele Alli
  • Toby Alderweireld
  • Érik Lamela

Off course all football clubs denied any allegations made by Daniel Ainsworth on twitter.

Arsenal said they were “extremely disappointed” by the publication of the claims, “which are without foundation”.

Chelsea said the claims were “false and entirely without foundation” while leaders Leicester also denied them.

Chelsea added they have “never used the services of Dr Bonar and have no knowledge or record of any of our players having been treated by him or using his services”.

Leicester denied the allegations and added: “We are extremely disappointed that The Sunday Times has published unsubstantiated allegations referring to players from clubs including Leicester City when, on its own admission, it has insufficient evidence to support the claims.”

Championship side Birmingham City said: “The club have not used the services of Mark Bonar and has no knowledge or record of any of our players, past or present, doing so.”

The only thing we can say is: Where there’s smoke, there’s fire!
