Two-year ban recommended for Flachi

Two-year ban recommended for Flachi

Sampdoria captain Francesco Flachi should be banned for two years for doping, the Italian Olympic Committee recommended to soccer authorities Thursday.
Flachi has been provisionally suspended since February after traces of cocaine were found in his system following Sampdoria's 2-0 loss to visiting Inter Milan on Jan. 28.
His "B" sample also came back positive.
Flachi's case will now be handled by the Italian soccer federation's disciplinary committee.
Flachi was also suspended for two months by the league in September for illegal betting.
