Liverpool's Sakho fails dope test: report

Associated Press Associated Press 23/04/2016

Liverpool says Mamadou Sakho is being investigated by UEFA over a potential breach of anti-doping rules.

The Europa League semi-finalists say the France defender has not been suspended but that "the club, in consultation with the player, has decided that while this process is followed, the player will not be available for selection for matches".

Liverpool said on Friday "a formal communication was received from UEFA stating that they are investigating a possible anti-doping rule violation".

A person familiar with the situation told AP the drugs test happened after Liverpool's Europa League game at Manchester United on March 17 and that a fat-burning substance was detected.
