South Korea Forward Fails Drugs Test And Blames Result On Moustache Growing Cream

South Korea Forward Fails Drugs Test And Blames Result On Moustache Growing Cream

South Korean forward Kang Soo-il has tested positive for a banned steroid with the forward blaming a moustache growing cream for the failed doping test.

The K-League said the Jeju United player had the anabolic steroid methyltestosterone in his system after a test by the KADA, according to news outlet Yonhap.

Kang, 27, was in Kuala Lumpur with the national team who beat the United Arab Emirates 3-0 in a friendly before they head to Bangkok to take on Myanmar next week in their opening 2018 World Cup qualifier.

The Korean Football Association (KFA) said Kang – who has never actually played for his country – would be banished from the squad and sent home on Friday.

If his B sample also tests positive, the player is entitled to a doping hearing, where he can put forward his moustache cream theory. First time offenders faced a 15-game ban from the K-League, the news agency said.

Kang has scored five goals for Jeju this season after moving from Pohang Steelers last term and was set to make his international debut against the UAE.
