Russian sports journalist Igor Rabiner said he talked to the current player of one of the Russian clubs, who told him that football players of Moscow clubs regularly use cocaine. Rabiner wrote it in an article on "Sport Express".
Journalist was interested in this topic after the disqualification of a Moscow CSKA football player Roman Eremenko, which was accused of cocaine use by UEFA.
Rabiner says that one of the players told him that this is a widespread phenomenon in the Moscow football.
"A few days ago, I spoke off the record with one active player. And I heard that there is a practice in Moscow teams to check the players after the weekend. And some of the players allegedly use cocaine not to get "high", but in order to get out of the binge! "Freshen up and ready for training," the journalist writes.
According to him, in this conversation he heard that some of other well-known players were just lucky and did not get caught.
"They were not the one to go to the doping control at a critical moment. Surnames can’t be made public because it can not be proven. But this story was not the only one…" the journalist writes.
