Mutu fails another doping test

Mutu fails another doping test

Adrian Mutu has failed yet another doping test.
The Italian Olympic Committee said Friday that the Fiorentina forward tested positive for traces of Sibutramina, a stimulant that counters hunger, following an Italian Cup game with Lazio last week.
On Thursday, CONI announced that Mutu failed a test for the same drug following a Serie A game with Bari on Jan. 10.
The 31-year-old Mutu is already facing the prospect of having to pay (EURO)17 million (US$24 million) compensation after being fired by former club Chelsea for using cocaine. Another doping offense could result in a ban of up to four years.
