Mamadou Sakho

European Football governing body, Uefa has dismissed the doping allegations against Liverpool and France defender, Mamadou Sakho.

The 26-year-old served a provisional 30-day suspension after testing positive for a ‘fat burner’ in March.

Though Sakho admitted taking the substance, but Uefa had to investigate whether it was actually prohibited.

Its control, ethics and disciplinary body dismissed the case after a hearing including experts from World Anti-Doping Agency-accredited laboratories.

Relieved Sakho while speaking with reporters after the judgment, Sakho said; “I am happy that this is finally over. It’s been a difficult time for me but I knew I had done nothing wrong.”

“I am looking forward to getting back in the team and playing again.”

Centre-back Sakho’s failed test followed Liverpool’s Europa League last-16 second-leg tie against Manchester United on 17 March.

He was eligible for selection for his country for Euro 2016 but was left out of the squad.

Liverpool said in a statement: “We are pleased for Mamadou that he can now resume his playing career.”
