WE KNEW MOURAD Boudjellal was a controversial figure, but this is something else.

Toulon have been caught up in allegations of doping in the last two days, after reports by French broadcaster RTL suggested that some of the club’s players are under suspicion of having been illegally supplied with products by pharmacists in the French town.

RTL has mentioned anabolic steroids and growth hormones in their reports, but Boudjellal has completely rubbished the claims, instead saying that a pharmacist who last worked with the club in 2006 is under investigation and that his club have nothing to be worried about.

The Toulon president has now attempted to make light of the situation by posting a photo of himself lying on a couch with the club’s silverware in the background.

Toulon’s official Twitter account posted the above photo alongside a well-known image shared by Lance Armstrong in 2012, after he had been stripped of his seven Tour de France titles following an investigation that found him guilty of using performance-enhancing drugs.

“Like Lance Armstrong with his yellow jerseys, our president poses lying on the couch with RCT’s trophies,” reads the post on Toulon’s official page.
