Following a positive test after Jamaica’s 2-0 loss in Honduras in a June 11 World Cup qualifier, FIFA suspended Reggae Boyz midfielder Jermaine Hue for nine months. The world governing body of soccer announced the suspension on Thursday, and it also suspended team doctor Carlton Fraser for four years.
Hue (pictured, behind) tested positive for dexamethasone, according to the FIFA release. Dexamethasone is on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s 2013 Prohibited List, and FIFA alleges that Dr. Fraser administered the drug to Hue.
As a result of the test, Hue is ineligible for all domestic, international, friendly and official matches until May 6, 2014, and Dr. Fraser is banned until Aug. 6, 2017.
On the same day, FIFA revoked its decision to suspend an unnamed Bulgarian international because of a lack of evidence after he tested positive for a banned substance following Bulgaria’s 2-1 win at Malta on Sept. 10.
