Extremely shocking news came to Monza club when their player, Papu Gomez, was said to have tested positive for doping. He will face a two-year ban in the context that Monza just signed Gomez last summer.
Specifically, Romano wrote: “World Cup champion Papu Gomez was banned from competing due to doping. The Argentine player was banned from playing for two years when he just signed a contract with Serie A representative Monza after leaving Sevilla on a free transfer.
Gomez was impressive during his time at Atalanta. While playing in Bergamo, Gomez scored 50 goals in Serie A after 209 appearances over 6 years of playing football.
However, conflicts with coach Gian Piero Gasperini eventually led to him leaving in January 2021 to join Sevilla. At the age of 35, if he cannot successfully appeal the sentence, Gomez will likely say goodbye to top football.
This season, Monza has played quite well. They are ranked 7th on the rankings with 12 points after 8 rounds.
