Premier League giants Arsenal, Chelsea and Leicester City have denied recent doping allegations made against them which they believe are made without foundation, according to ESPN.
A report in the Sunday Times suggested a doctor had been secretly filmed while discussing helping Premier League athletes with banned treatments .
However, all three clubs have quickly moved to deny such reports and have expressed their disappointment at their release in the press today.
‘Leicester City Football Club is extremely disappointed that The Sunday Times has published unsubstantiated allegations referring to players from clubs including Leicester City when, on its own admission, it has insufficient evidence to support the claims’, read a statement released by the table toppers.
Chelsea, whose former fitness coach Rob Brinded is mentioned in the report, have also strongly denied any involvement.
‘The claims The Sunday Times put to us are false and entirely without foundation’, stated the Blues.
‘We take the issue of performance-enhancing drugs in sport extremely seriously and comply fully with all anti-doping rules and regulations.’
London neighbours Arsenal followed a similar pattern and dismissed suggestions they too had playing talent involved.
‘Arsenal Football Club is extremely disappointed by the publication of these false claims which are without foundation,’ announced the Gunners.
