Marcus Berg has FIFA doping problems
There is now the fear that FIFA could ban Swedish striker Marcus Berg.
News as broken in Swedish press on Monday that Marcus Berg has been reported to FIFA over a doping test.
In their last match in Russia, Sweden were beaten 2-1 by Germany. Toni Kroos settled the match with an amazing goal deep into injury time.
It’s now been revealed that Swedish striker Marcus Berg was called for random doping test after the Germany game.
But Berg annoyed the FIFA representative. Instead of going directly to take his test after the game, Berg held numerous interviews instead.
Only after Berg had completed his interviews did he take the test.
Will Marcus Berg face a FIFA, World Cup ban?
To be clear, Berg did not fail his drugs test.
Instead, he has now been reported to FIFA for flouting their rules and delaying his test.
It’s also been stressed that Berg was warned about delaying his drugs test at the time.
Swedish paper Expressen today claim that while Berg could be in trouble with FIFA, he won’t be banned.
Swedish fans will obviously be hoping that Expressen are spot on.
