Brazilian striker admits cocaine use

Botafogo striker Jobson risks a life ban from football after failing two dope tests in less than a month and admitting he used cocaine.
Jobson told SporTV he had used the illicit substance and "deserves to be punished, but not banned" indefinitely from the sport because of his "mistake."
The 21-year-old forward first tested positive for cocaine after the team's 2-0 victory against Coritiba on Nov. 8 and then after a 2-1 win over Palmeiras on Dec. 6, when he scored.
Jobson, whose fate will be decided by a disciplinary committee meeting, could be handed a life ban.
The speedy striker was one of the greatest up-and-coming players this season and had already reached an agreement to play for Cruzeiro next year.
