ARSENE WENGER will be invited to discuss his allegations about drugs in football with the UK’s anti-doping chief.
Arsenal boss Wenger hit out in November at Uefa’s drug-testing programme and claimed rival teams had been doping during his time with the Gunners.
The outburst came after a Dinamo Zagreb player was banned for four years for failing a drugs test following the Croatian club’s Champions League win at the Emirates in September.
“Football commands huge salaries and huge television rights. There’s a lot to be gained from doping, irrespective of the physiological requirements of the game itself.
“Look at how the game is played, the recovery rate with injuries. Football, tennis, other sports: something doesn’t feel right.
“Football are a rich sport and they have fantastic infrastructures behind them and their clubs. “I am not saying I have any evidence that this is the case.
“But we have seen that people who want to invest in a very clever scientist or doctor, to tell them what to take, when to take it and when it’s going to clear their system – it only takes money and to know where to go.
“What makes football any different from any sport that goes down that path?”
