Deco vows to clear name in doping mess

May 2 2013, 4:32am CDT | by

Rio de Janeiro, May 2 (IANS) Fluminense midfielder Deco has said he would "stop at nothing" to clear his name of doping allegations after testing positive to a banned diuretic.

Rio de Janeiro, May 2 — Fluminense midfielder Deco has said he would "stop at nothing" to clear his name of doping allegations after testing positive to a banned diuretic.

The 35-year-old former Portugal international failed the test after Fluminense's 2-0 victory over Boavista in Brazil's Campeonato Carioca March 30.

In a brief statement Wednesday, he blamed contaminated vitamins for the positive sample and said he would await results of a secondary test Friday before commenting further.

"I have spoken to my lawyer and I will wait for the results of the B sample," Deco was quoted as saying by Xinhua. "I have always taken vitamins and have never used anything illicit.

"I've been playing professional football for 18 years, including 15 in Europe, without any problems. I will make a decision only after seeing the B result and I will stop at nothing to clarify the facts."

Deco has been left out of Fluminense's squad for Thursday's Copa Libertadores round of 16 first leg against Emelec in the Ecuadorian city of Guayaquil.

The former Porto, Barcelona and Chelsea star has helped Fluminense to two Brazilian Serie A titles since joining the club in 2010.

He is one of few players to have won the Champions League with two different clubs, having claimed the winners' medal for Porto in 2004 and Barcelona in 2006.

Deco will even score awesome goals in his own testimonial. This was Deco's testimonial -- and it's 2004 Porto vs. 2006 Barcelona so it's a really great testimonial -- so he is the god of the day no matter what he does, and yet he managed to out-awesome the awesomeness of it all with this peach. He didn't even have to try hard to do it either. Let's go through it, step-by-step: 1. Don't run2. Don ...
