Manchester City have issued a brief statement confirming that Kolo Toure was fined sixweeks’ wages for a ban imposed due to doping offences and accepted the punishment.
Toure was banned for six months after testing positive to a banned substance which later turned out to be his wife’s diet pills.
The Ivory Coast defender took his place back in the City squad in September after serving his ban.
The full club statement as follows:
“Following the conclusion of an internal disciplinary process, Manchester City Football Club can confirm that Kolo Toure has received a fine of six weeks’ wages which relates to doping offences committed by him earlier this year.
Kolo accepts the decision and he and the Club now wish to draw a line under this matter and focus on the season ahead.”
