12:16 | Zurich (Switzerland), Oct. 1.
The Swiss Federal Tribunal has dismissed Paolo Guerrero's request to lift his 14-month ban imposed on him by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
This means the Peruvian striker will remain suspended until April next year and will not be able to play for Internacional.
The Peru captain joined Sport Club Internacional from fellow Brazilian club Flamengo last August.
The star's defense demonstrated —with evidence— that he had never used cocaine (banned by FIFA). Instead, he had —unknowingly— drunk a contaminated tea.
Then, Guerrero's legal team submitted an appeal to the Swiss Federal Court to suspend the ban imposed on the Peruvian icon.
