View Full Version : Footballers Named In Hack

Carlos Tevez, Dirk Kuyt and Gabriel Heinze have been named by hackers Fancy Bears as three of the footballers allowed to use banned medicines during the 2010 World Cup.

The trio were among 25 players given Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUEs) during the tournament in South Africa.

The Russian group also claims 160 players failed drugs tests in 2015 in the latest leaked documents.

Four of the failed tests were registered by UK Anti-Doping (Ukad).

Three players tested positive for cocaine and one for ecstasy.

This is the first time Fancy Bears hackers have released details about football, having previously released medical records of athletes.

What's the issue here?

The fact UKAD only caught four footballers in the whole of 2015 shows how lightly football takes the issue of doping.

I cannot believe there are not more footballers stupid enough to take recreational drugs (so they are not being caught) and that's before looking at the performance enhancing ones.
