Arsene-Wenger1-260x194Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has demanded UEFA change their rules on doping because he claims the current regulations don’t do enough to discourage drug cheats.

Wenger has been outspoken against doping and questioned why UEFA rulings means there is no way of disqualifying a team from continental competition unless more than two players fail a test.

His frustration has come to the fore this week as Dinamo Zagreb midfielder Arijan Ademi was handed a four-year ban for failing a drugs test after the Croatian side beat Arsenal in the Champions League in September.

Zoran Mamic’s side won 2-1 in Zagreb and now Arsenal face them again at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday knowing they must secure a victory to stand any chance of getting out of their group.
