Former Black Stars team doctor warns Ghanaian players to stay away from energetic substance

Dr. Prince Pambo, who is a member of the Confederation of Africa Football, CAF, medical team, has warned Ghanaian players to stay away from steroids which boost their performance.
The former Black stars team doctor issued this warning after Aduana Stars defender Stephen Anokye Badu tested positive for banned substances Prednisolone and Prednisone after their Confederation Cup match against AS Vital.
And the astute medical practitioner cautioned Ghanaian players to stay away from drugs like steroid that gives competitive advantage over others.
"The implications of committing a doping offence varries," Dr. Pambo told the media.
"In the case of Anokye Badu, what he has taken is considered as a steroid. And these steroids are known to promote mussel-borg which give a player an undue competitive advantage over his colleagues."
"We (CAF medical team) believe, in sports everybody should be given the chance to play fair. So if someone take anything that gives extra energy, then of course it's considered a crime," he said.
Dr. Prince Pambo was sent by CAF to supervise the age verification of players (MRI scan) in the Central part of Africa for the qualification of the African Youth championship.
