Blood samples in a Spanish freezer could spark biggest doping scandal of all time

"If implicated, football clearly carries the potential for a major scandal. Jesus Manzano, the former cyclist whose 2004 interview with the Spanish newspaper AS blew the whistle on Fuentes, said he often saw “well-known” footballers waiting to see the doctor when he went for his red blood cell top-ups, while plenty of clubs are alleged to have worked with him. In 2013, Fuentes even ­issued, via his lawyers, a series of questions he might be prepared to answer. One of the questions was: “How I prepared a team to play in the Champions League”.

In the midst of winter, I finally learned that there was, in me, an invincible summer.

There’s no next time. It’s now or never.

I wouldn't be surprised. Wherever money's involved now, the worst sides of mankind come to the fore.

We're OK. Our club has so many dopes there's no doping required.  ;D
Don't make the same mistake twice, there's plenty of new ones to choose from.

Those who choose to preach would do well to take note of their own sermons.

Now that's really interesting...Jan Molby did 6 months with the white stuff...but i have always wondered if there were others out there who took performance enhancing stuff.
Would not be surprised in the least.

aye, plenty of dopes in our neighbourhood.

But being serious  (and I will never name any names/teams) but  the energy levels of some of the top Spanish teams in the 2000s, often amazed me.    Surreal ability to press and counter-attack.    Probably cornflakes, or good training systems, or whatever.  ;)
