After Guerrero's World Cup ban, union seeks new doping rules

17 May 2018

But, per Sky Sports, the Court of Arbitration (CAS) for Sport upheld an appeal by the World Anti-Doping Agency to extend said ban after it expired this month.

Paolo Guerrero, who at one point wasn't heading to the cup and then was, officially won't be at the tournament after the Court of Arbitration for Sport imposed a 14-month ban on the player. The suspension finished 10 days ago.

But WADA lodged an appeal - alongside another from Guerrero seeking to quash his sanction altogether - requesting the Federation Internationale de Football Association decision was set aside and a ban of one to two years implemented.

"FIFPro considers the ban unfair and disproportionate, and the latest example of a World Anti Doping code that too often leads to inappropriate sanctions, especially when it has been established that there was no intent to cheat", it said.

"The CAS made a decision to increase Mr Guerrero's suspension from 6 to 14 months, starting today (Monday), with the period of provisional suspension of 6 months already served by Mr Guerrero being credited against the total period of ineligibility to be served", said a CAS statement.
