Onana failed a urine test where a forbidden substance Furosemide was detected in his urine. The Cameroon international seems to have accidentally ingested the substance from taking medicine which belonged to his wife the club reported.
Ajax are set to appeal the ban on behalf of the player as they released the following statement:
“On the morning of October 30, Onana was feeling unwell. He wanted to take a pill to ease the discomfort. Unknowingly, however, he took Lasimac, a drug that his wife had previously been prescribed.”
“Onana’s confusion resulted in him mistakenly taking his wife’s medicine, ultimately causing this measure to be taken by UEFA against the goalkeeper.
“Furthermore, the disciplinary body of the football association has stated that Onana had no intention of cheating. However, the European Football Association believes, on the basis of the applicable anti-doping rules, that an athlete has a duty at all times to ensure that no banned substances enter the body.”
Pending the outcome of the appeal, Onana is in danger of missing the African Cup Of Nations on home soil. The tournament is set to take place in January 2022.
