Drug testing in football will increase to unprecedented levels this season, with the Premier League coming under the greatest scrutiny.
The Football Association, in conjunction with UK Anti-Doping, conducted more than 3,250 tests on professional players last season, and there were two positive results with two further cases under review. But the game’s governing body has promised to raise that total to more than 5,000 over the coming year.
