Kolo reveals drug test fears

Liverpool defender Kolo Toure fears team-mate Mamadou Sakho will not be the last Premier League player to test positive for a banned substance.
Sakho has been handed a 30-day provisional UEFA ban having failed a doping test for a substance believed to be a ‘fat-burner’ following Liverpool’s Europa League win over Manchester United on March 17.
The France international decided not to challenge the results of the test and could now miss Euro 2016.
Toure himself served a six-month suspension when he was at Manchester City in 2011 for taking his wife’s diet pills and he has warned a similar mistake will almost certainly affect other players.
“I stayed positive. That’s all you can do. For six months, I was thinking about life,” Toure said.
“I realised how important football is and it gave me encouragement to work hard. We have tough times but you use that to get back.
“Anything can happen in life. You drive your car every day in the same road and one day you just have no concentration… accident.
“That’s part of life. It can happen to anyone. Sakho won’t be the last one. Sometimes you think everybody knows – but he won’t be the last. It’s just a moment of not the right thinking.
“He has to keep working hard, put his head down. Hard times come and go.”
