Edgar Davids: Tests Confirm Doping
ROME (AP) _ A second doping test on Juventus midfielder Edgar Davids confirmed traces of the banned steroid nandrolone, the Italian Olympic Committee said Wednesday.
The tests were a ``definitive confirmation,″ the committee said
Davids, a Dutch international, faces automatic suspension by a soccer federation disciplinary commission. It could be followed by a ban from league and international play for up to two years.
Davids first tested positive for the steroid after a Udinese-Juventus Serie A league match in March.
He has denied taking the banned substance.
Seven other Italian league players have tested positive for nandrolone this season.
