Get a medical test or get suspended – MFA

Thursday, January 10, 2013, 9:41

The Malta Football Association is sending a strong and important message in favour of player’s health and against the possible use of illegal substances  in local football with a very harsh but positive decision as four Premier League players have been suspended for one match for not conducting medical tests as requested under new MFA rules which were enforced for the first time this month.

The tests are to be conducted by the clubs under an MFA scheme to make medical tests more affordable to clubs and players.

The players are Demba Toure (Valletta) Igor Coronado (Floriana) and Massimo Grima and Glenn Azzopardi (both Hamrun). They will remain suspended until the tests are carried out. These tests are aimed at checking out the physical health of a player and are not specifically focused on doping.

Five other players were suspended for various infringements. They are Rodolfo Soares (Hibs) Ryan Fenech (Valletta), Ryan Camenzuli (Birkirkara) Edison Zarate (Qormi) and Luigi Ruggeri (Sliema).
