Monza said Friday it had received notification from FIFA, via the Italian soccer federation, of the sentence by the Spanish anti-doping commission.
“The sentence imposes a ban of two years from sporting activities,” Monza said in a statement. “The presence of Terbutaline was found in the player’s biological samples. The drug was taken to calm a bronchospasm issue, in October 2022, when the footballer was registered for Sevilla FC.”
Gomez was on the bench when Sevilla won the Europa League final last season and his contract with the club was terminated on Sept. 1. He joined Monza three weeks ago as a free agent and has played in two Serie A matches — without scoring — since returning to Italy.
