Sead Seferovic (NK Zeljeznicar) receives one-year suspension for doping

The FIFA Disciplinary Committee, having been informed by UEFA of its decision to suspend the player Sead Seferovic (NK Zeljeznicar) for one year for a doping offence, has extended the suspension internationally.

Seferovic tested positive for ephedrine following the UEFA Champions League qualifying match between NK Zeljeznicar and Newcastle United FC on 14 August 2002.

The player is therefore suspended from all matches, whether friendly or competitive, and at both national and international level, until 13 October 2003.
