Mutu awaits Federal Prosecutor’s ruling

Nino D’Avirro, Romanian striker Adrian Mutu’s lawyer, stated on Tuesday morning for ‘La Nazione’ daily that he is waiting for the Federal Prosecutor’s decision in the ‘sibutramine’ case, the prosecutor being set to rule the sanction against Fiorentina’s player, fiorentina.it informs.

‘We are waiting for the Federal Prosecutor’s recommendation. His recommendation will be followed by the announcement of the hearing day f and then the sentence will be given. In certain cases the sanction recommended by the Federal Prosecutor is announced but we are currently on stand-by,’ D’Avirro said.

The current doping scandal, the second in Mutu’s career, erupted on January 28 when the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) announced that Fiorentina’s striker tested positive for sibutramine following an anti-doping test conducted on January 10, after a championship game against Bari. Only 24 hours later CONI informed that Mutu also tested positive following a test conducted on January 20, after a Cup game against Lazio.

Mutu was temporarily suspended by CONI and the Romanian striker gave up his demand for further analysis of the biological samples.

Mutu’s mother claimed the player took weight loss pills that she had forgotten there after visiting him in Italy and that their indications of use do not mention the fact that they contain sibutramine.

Adrian Mutu was heard on March 3 and the Italian press wrote that the verdict in his case will be given at the end of April.

Adrian Mutu first tested positive at the end of 2004 back when he was playing for Chelsea London. Chelsea bought Mutu from AC Parma in the summer of 2003 for GBP 15.8 M but canceled his contract in October 2004 after the player tested positive for cocaine.
