City defender Touré to appear before FA hearing
Thursday 26 May 2011
The Manchester City defender Kolo Touré faces a Football Association hearing at Wembley today, charged with testing positive for a banned substance believed to be found in a dietary supplement.
He faces a ban of up to two years following his suspension from playing, which came after he tested for a "specified substance" after the Manchester derby in February, though the sanction is likely to be less. It is unclear what mitigation Touré's lawyers will offer in his defence.
