Chinese Super League player suspended for doping

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) " The Asian Football Confederation says Jin Jingdao of Chinese Super League side Shandong Luneng has been provisionally suspended following a positive doping test during the Asian Champions League quarterfinals.

The AFC said in a statement late Friday that Jin tested positive for clenbuterol before the match against FC Seoul on Aug. 23, a match Seoul won 3-1. Clenbuterol, a steroid, is banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency.

It said Jin is banned from taking part in any football-related activity for 60 days, and the ban can be further extended by 30 days. Jin will have the right to request testing of his "B'' sample.

The AFC said the Chinese Football Association and Shandong Luneng have been notified of the suspension.
