Chiefs Blast Safa And Media 06/01/04
Soweto glamour club Kaizer Chiefs have admitted that one of their players allegedly tested positive for a banned substance but have lashed out at the media and Safa for the manner in which the case has been dealt.

"We acknowledge receiving a confidential letter from Safa stating alleged traces of a banned substance found in urine samples of one of our players," the club said in an official statement released on Monday.

"(But) the insensitive nature in which the matter has been handled by some media and Safa breaches the confidentiality that protects the rights of the player concerned, in a case that is still sub-judice."

It was also revealed that the unnamed player tested positive for the banned steroid methyl testosterone, something that is said to boost a takers muscle size and sex drive.

In the statement Amakhosi also said the player under went three separate tests, the last after Castle Premiership game against SuperSport United on November 5.
 
The player is said to have attended a disciplinary hearing on December 17 of which Chiefs said: "Safa did not have a medical expert available as a witness since medical and physiological questions were raised at the hearing pertaining to the substance in question."

The case will now be heard on January 25.
