Nasri's Ban Increased to 18 Months After Appeal🙌

Former Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri has had his suspension for violating UEFA's anti-doping regulations increased from six to 18 months.

Nasri was originally banned for six months after he received a drip treatment at a Los Angeles clinic in 2016, which UEFA said contravened rules laid down by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

But an appeal against the initial sanction by UEFA's ethics and disciplinary inspector has resulted in an extended suspension, announced on Wednesday.

The ban is backdated to July 1 2017 and while Nasri made eight appearances for Turkish side Antalyaspor during that time, the 31-year-old free agent can return to training in November.

A statement from UEFA read: "The UEFA Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body's decision of 22 February 2018 is amended as follows:

"1. The player Samir Nasri is suspended for eighteen [18] months. This suspension will start running on 1 July 2017.

"2. The player Samir Nasri is allowed to return to training, with any football club starting from 1 November 2018."
