Unfortunately I missed the name of the product and it is only a rumor.
3AW are reporting it was an Hgh supplement.

2 year holiday for the players and possibly a team ban unless the AFL does a You See I.

if Alfredo is a doc's name, Milan might be as well.

In interviews, Fuentes never spoke of Italian clubs, so I'd be surprised if it's AC.
But not impossible of course.

Apparently the German doc Markus Choina was an important middleman, hence "medicamentos alemanes". (source)
Let's see how the German press responds to this. I'd be disappointed if they keep silent on the this link.

btw.
Ironic to see Alfredo got only 10 IG units to run 2 cycling teams.
RSOC got 40 to 50 units.
Did anybody say doping is less prevalent or important in soccer than in cycling?

Milan gets 40 units too. Make of that what you wish. Was Milan running eight cycling teams?

"San Millán" doesn't sound a lot like "San Milan".

You're probably kidding, but there's people out there who would take it at face value.

Milan is indeed a strange name on the papers, like they do not have the Milan medical centre. Maybe a codename.

Furthermore, Australia must be a dopers heaven.

Inter Milan won't need to be afraid for now though.Milan usually means AC Milan.

They had a lot of success during Fuentes hey days and a club owned by Berlusconi engaged in team wide doping shouldn't be too much of a surprise.

true.


Agree, though you're not counting with the national and international press, who might smell blood and decide to go digging.

No idea about the laws but Stallone got busted by the FDA for bringing HGH into the country, I've never heard about anybody getting busted like that bringing stuff into the UK for example.
