1 min read

Ajax goalkeeper Andre Onana has been banned from football for 12 months by UEFA after he tested positive for a banned substance.

Onana, 24, tested positive for the banned substance Furosemide, a diuretic, on October 30, according to Ajax.

His 12-month suspension is effective from today and applies to club and international football. Onana and Ajax have said they will appeal the decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

Ajax say that Onana accidentally took a drug prescribed to his wife when he woke up on the morning of October 30 feeling unwell.

He subsequently failed an out of competition drugs test.

In a statement, Ajax said: “The disciplinary body of the football association has stated that Onana had no intention of cheating.

“However, the European Football Association believes, on the basis of the applicable anti-doping rules, that an athlete has a duty at all times to ensure that no banned substances enter the body.”
