Leave a comment | | July 31, 2017 3:12 PM

Manchester United duo of Phil Jones and Daley Blind have both landed in UEFA’s hot water aftermath of their side’s 2-0 win over Ajax in the Europa League final in May.

While Phil Jones has been fined for €5,000 and banned for two European matches after being charged for “insulting and directing abuse” at a doping officer, Daley Blind was also charged and fined €5,000 after the defender failed to report immediately to the doping control station  after his side’s victory.

Jones will therefore, miss the UEFA Super Cup against Real Madrid in Skopje, as well as the first game of United’s Champions League campaign but Blind is free to play.

UEFA’s Control, Ethics and Disciplinary Body confirmed United were fined €10,000 for infringements of its Anti-Doping Regulations, although the club and both players can appeal.

United’s charge relates to UEFA’s doping regulations which states:  “teams are responsible for ensuring that the players drawn to undergo doping controls are taken by the respective team representatives to the doping control station straight from the pitch as soon as the match is over.”
