Liverpool: Fans stunned by WADA apology to Mamadou Sakho

Liverpool: Fans stunned by WADA apology to Mamadou Sakho - Liverpool News

Former Liverpool defender Mamadou Sakho has received an official apology from the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) over wrongfully suspending him for 30 days in 2016.

The Frenchman was suspended for testing positive for Higenamine, which is a form of fat-burner that was not on WADA’s list of banned substances.

The 30-day ban meant that he missed Liverpool’s Europa League final against Sevilla in May 2016, which they lost 3-1 in Basel and missed out on qualifying for the Champions League.

The 30-year-old, who now plays for Crystal Palace, was awarded a ‘substantial sum of damages’ after Sakho’s demands.
