Atalanta’s Palomino cleared of doping offences

Jose Luis Palomino has been acquited of doping offences after testing positive for an anabolic steroid in the summer, his club Atalanta said on Monday.

Italy’s anti-doping agency NADO cleared Argentine defender Palomino after he claimed to have accidentally taken the steroid. He can now play for Gian Piero Gasperini’s side.

“I’m very happy! I had faith in the justice system and now I can turn my attention to being back with my teammates,” Palomino said in a statement on Atalanta’s website.

Palomino, 32, had been suspended since July following his positive test.

Atalanta face Lecce and Inter Milan before Serie A breaks for the World Cup, returning in early January.
