Rabotnicki players suspended for doping

FK Rabotnicki players Milovan Petrovic and Dino Najdoski have been suspended for a year by UEFA's Control and Disciplinary body following positive doping tests.

Two FK Rabotnicki players, Milovan Petrovic and Dino Najdoski, have been suspended for one year (the period of the provisional suspension imposed on both players, i.e. 45 days, is deducted) following positive doping tests carried out at the UEFA Europa League match between S.S. Lazio and FK Rabotnicki (6-0) on 18 August 2011.

Physiotherapist Darko Velcevski and club doctor Mihajlo Ivanovski have also been suspended from any football-related activity for a period of three and two years respectively. FIFA has been asked to extend the punishments imposed on these four people so as to give the bans worldwide effect.

Furthermore, Rabotnicki have been suspended for one UEFA club competition for which they qualify during the next four seasons. This exclusion is suspended for four years. Finally, the side from the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia have also been fined €30,000.

Appeals can be lodged within three days of the dispatch of the reasoned decisions.
