Brazil’s Globoesporte newspaper unveiled the latest information on the Paolo Guerrero case.
Pedro Frida, a lawyer for Paolo Guerrero, and Luiz Carlos Cameron, a biochemist who is following the case of the Peruvian, returned to Rio de Janeiro after meeting with the Peruvian Football Federation (FPF) in Lima.
According to the Globoesporte portal, the conclusions reached by the defense of Guerrero were positive. “The metabolite [benzoylecgonine] found in the urine of the Flamengo striker comes from the coca leaf used for tea consumption in various South American countries,” the Brazilian newspaper reported.
The biochemist Cameron examined the urine test of Paolo Guerrero and considers that the substances found are not related to the consumption of drugs, but to the intake of a tea.
If this is confirmed, it is likely that the Peruvian striker will not receive any drastic sanctions.
“The trip to Peru was very productive, we were reunited with the Peruvian Football Federation, we asked for their cooperation and soon we will go to FIFA, we have great confidence in the innocence of Paolo Guerrero, we will prove Paolo’s innocence,” Pedro Frida told Globoesporte.
