Future of Kolo Toure Still Hanging in the Balance

Manchester City center back Kolo Toure’s future over his controversial dope scandal has not been decided yet and the former Arsenal players is now waiting for FA decision on this regard.

Toure, 29, was found positive in a sample A drug test recently and is facing a ban up to two years from all forms of football. However, the defender said he had not been aware of the presence of ‘specified substance’ in his wife’s diet pill before taking it to keep himself fit physically.

The Ivory Coast international got support from Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and the football federation of his country over the issue. Toure can now request for a sample B test as per the rule to check if illegal substance was really found in his body. FA has already said that it would reveal its decision over case within 8 weeks.

Kolo Toure joined Manchester City in summer 2009 for £16 million after spending seven years with Arsenal. Now, if FA imposes any ban on him, he can then appeal against it at the court of arbitration for sport.
