Subrata suspended for dope taint, will go for B sample test


Indian goalkeeper Subrata Paul was provisionally suspended today after failing a dope test but has vowed to prove himself innocent by going for the confirmatory ‘B’ sample test.

All India Football Federation, AIFF General Secretary Kushal Das said Paul, an Arjuna Awardee, flunked an out-of- competition test last month. Paul is faced with the prospect of a four-year ban.
Paul, who made his India debut in 2007 and went onto represent the country 64 times till 2015, said he has achieved most of whatever he had set out for in his career.

And there is no reason for him to do cheat and risk tarnishing his reputation. Paul played a major role in India winning the Nehru Cup international tournament in 2007 and 2009. In the last couple of years, Paul has not been India’s No.1 goalkeeper as that position has gone to Gurpreet Singh Sandhu, who currently plays for a Norwegian first division club.
