Manchester City Charged By The FA For Breaking Anti-Doping Rules

Does anti-doping mean steroids? Being from America, whenever I hear the term ‘anti-doping,’ I think of a dude sticking a syringe in his ass. However, given the BRIEF statement released by the FA, it doesn’t appear that steroids are involved (unfortunately):

Via Independent:

Manchester City Football Club has been charged by the Football Association for allegedly breaking anti-doping rules.

 A short statement released by the FA read: “Manchester City have been charged in relation to The FA’s Rules on Anti-Doping.

“It is alleged the club failed to ensure that their ‘Club Whereabouts’ information was accurate, contrary to Regulation 14(d).

Manchester City has until January 19 to respond to the charges.

It has yet to be determined how this will affect the club and the remainder of the Premier League season. Manchester City, 13-3-4, currently sits fourth in the Premier League table, behind Chelsea, Liverpool, and Tottenham.

Manchester City have been charged in relation to The FA’s rules on Anti-Doping:
