NYON---UEFA says it has suspended two football
referees from Armenia while it prosecutes them
The European football body says referee Andranik
Arsenyan and assistant Hovhannes Avagyan, who
admitted to corrupting a Europa League match for
a betting scam, have been suspended until their
cases are heard on August 22.
Both officials, who were banned by the Armenian
football association on Tuesday, have been approved
by Fifa for international matches since January 2012.
UEFA says it "detected suspicious betting patterns"
around Vikingur s 1-0 win at Inter Turku in Finalnd
on July 11.
Arsenyan awarded two penalties late in the scoreless
match, reportedly to help ensure both teams scored.
Vikingur, a team from the Faeroe Islands, scored
its penalty in the 78th minute and Turku missed two

FRANKFURT---The Bundesliga plans to start using
blood testing this season although it has no indi-
cation that doping is a factor in football.
German Football Federation president Wolfgang
Niersbach said yesterday the decision to start blood
testing was made before the publication of a study
that revealed a government-backed doping program
for West German athletes in the 1970s. One section
of the report says three German players showed
traces of a banned stimulant at the 1966 World Cup.
German Football League managing director Andreas
Rettig said the Bundesliga wants "stricter controls"
although it has "no indication" of doping.
The tests will not be ready in time for the start
of the season this weekend.
The federation (DFB) and the National Anti-Doping
Agency (NADA) are still working on a contract for
the tests, to be conducted by NADA.
Blood testing for banned substances has been used
in many major sports for years.
"It s the right signal to start blood testing in the
Bundesliga, a decision made before the latest events,"
Niersbach said on the fringes of a German Football
League (DFL) meeting in Berlin. The DFL runs the
professional game in Germany.
"We want to open up and conduct stricter
controls although we have no indication of
doping," Rettig said.
The study on doping, published Monday,
has sparked a nationwide debate on the
problem. Calls are growing for a federal
anti-doping law and to publish the full
report, with all the names. The government
has denied allegations of a cover-up.
In the study, Fifa s medical officer at the
time is quoted as telling a West German
athletics official that three players showed
"fine traces" of ephedrine, a banned stim-
ulant, after West Germany lost the 1966
World Cup final to host England.
Leading players of the time dismissed the
"In 1966, we still had no idea what doping
was," Franz Beckenbauer said. "There were
no controls, as far as I know. No one asked
me (to provide a urine sample)."
West Germany s 1966 captain, Uwe Seeler,
backed his teammate.
"I think nothing of doping," Seeler said.
"I didn t dope and I don t know anybody
The DFD also denied the report and said
no players were ever banned.
But former sprinter Manfred Ommer,
who admitted doping already in 1977, said
football had a doping problem.
"Of course there is doping in football. I
have absolutely no doubt. I said it already
in 1977," Ommer said.
Ommer served as president of the football
club FC Homburg between 1986 and 1994.
The club played in the Bundesliga for a
while under his presidency.
ROME---An Italian football player has been banned
for ten matches after racially abusing an opponent
in the first use of new anti-discrimination rules.
Gaetano Iannini, who plays for fifth-division Mat-
era, was handed the lengthy suspension by the Italian
football league yesterday for "directing an insult of
racial discrimination at an opponent."
Iannini was sent off for the incident during Sun-
day s 2-0 Italian Cup loss to third-division Sudtirol.
It is the first time that new Italian anti-discrim-
inatory rules which were introduced in June have
