Waddle: Marseille used player jabs
LONDON, England -- Former England star Chris Waddle claims that players were regularly given stimulant injections during his spell with French club Marseille.
"Players were injected all the time at Marseille," Waddle told the Sun newspaper on Thursday.
The winger spent three years at Marseille, winning the 1992 European Cup and league titles in 1990, 1991 and 1992.
"The club doctor said the injections would help our recovery after games. I had a couple of injections but they didn't make any difference," said Waddle.
While Marseille players were regularly tested by French sports ministry officials, none were ever accused of illegal doping, Waddle added.
"I don't know what it was but no one ever failed drugs tests and nothing illegal showed up."
