Ketsbaia Posted July 6, 2009 Share Posted July 6, 2009 http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/2009/07/06/sheffield-united-goalkeeper-paddy-kenny-fails-drugs-test-115875-21500133/ Sheffield United keeper Paddy Kenny faces a lengthy ban for failing a drugs test in a vital play-off match. The Republic of Ireland star has been found guilty of taking a ‘banned’ substance in a medicine before the semi-final play-off with Preston at the end of last season. Both A and B tests revealed Kenny failed and now he and the Blades are awaiting the verdict - and punishment. He could be banned for between six months and two years. United have suspended Kenny - who has just signed a lucrative new £1million-plus deal - while the issue is settled. Insiders claim Kenny only used the medicine because he was feeling unwell. He bought it at a chemist’s rather than using the club’s medical team. Sheffield United refused to comment last night. Not sure if it warrants a new thread, but this could potentially be good news for us. What an idiot though! Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
