Manchester City and Bury doctor, Andrew Johnson, has been charged by the Football Association in relation to an anti-doping violation, as reported by BBC Sport. Johnson has been accused of providing fraudulent information of a therapeutic use exemption (TUE) carried out at Bury last year.
Johnson has had various jobs whilst working at Bury, including working at the Manchester City Academy and a North-West clinic. The TUE he was accused of includes an application made about a player by Johnson regarding the use of testosterone – a banned substance.
Manchester City are also understood to have never employed Johnson full-time, and since becoming aware of this news, have not used him in any capacity. If Johnson were to be found guilty of this charge, he would face a four-year ban from working in sport.
