Real Madrid deny Ramos failed Champions League final doping test

It is claimed that the 32-year-old had two injections of Dexamethasone in his knee and shoulder the day before facing Juve, which is permitted as long as doping control are notified, but Madrid's team doctor did not declare it to UEFA.

Nobody seems to know exactly how truthful Football Leaks' claims are at this stage, but it certainly leaves a sour taste in the mouth of football fans.

The German news magazine Der Spiegel said the Spain defender tested positive for anti-inflammatory drug dexamethasone, which is only banned if testers are not informed of its use.

"It is an attempt to stain my image and my professional reputation".

Real Madrid beat Juventus 4-1 in the final and Ramos played the full 90 minutes. Ramos has just denied allegations over doping after a Football Leaks report, his team loses to Eibar for the first time ever, and the centre-back concede three goals in the process.

Meanwhile, Ramos started for Real Madrid on Saturday as Eibar thrashed his side 3-0.

"That is a very hard issue, complicated", Ramos said after Madrid's 3-0 loss at Eibar on Saturday. The matter was clarified and resolved formally and in writing between the organisations'.

Ramos goes on to assert that over his career he has submitted to and passed "an infinite number" of anti-doping tests and has never breached anti-doping regulations.

UEFA testers had to apply the needle for a second time, prompting Ronaldo to show "his dissatisfaction" and 'caused a lot of tension in the doping control station'.

The club's statement about the Ramos allegations also seems to include the reported events of February and no doubt the situation will become clearer in days to come.

"2. Uefa sought specific information and closed the file referred to immediately, as is habitual in these cases, after the verification from the experts themselves from the world anti-doping agency, AMA, and Uefa".

The club continued: "Regarding the rest of the content from the aforementioned publication, the club will not pronounce on evidence that is so insubstantial".

Gonzalo Escalante, Sergi Enrich and Kike all got the score-sheet as the Spanish minnows secured an impressive La Liga victory.
