Paul Pogba could be facing a ban of up to 4 years from football after testing positive for a banned substance.

Paul Pogba could be facing a ban of up to 4 years from football after testing positive for a banned substance.

The former French World Cup winner returned a sample with elevated levels of testosterone following a Serie A match last month.

30 year old Pogba has been provisionally suspended by his club Juventus pending the outcome of the process.

 

Stephen Kenny may remain in charge of the Republic of Ireland for the concluding European Championship qualifiers, with the FAI set to wait on making an immediate decision on his future.

The 2-1 defeat to the Netherlands on Sunday ended Ireland's chances of making the finals in Germany via the Group and the prospect of a play off is slim.

The Boys in Green face Greece and Gibraltar next month before the final game against the Dutch in November.

Lee Carsley, Roy Keane, Chris Hughton, Damien Duff, Neil Lennon and Mark Kennedy are some of the potential contenders to take over if Kenny is replaced.


After a dramatic win over Turkey the other night, the Republic of Ireland under 21s face San Marino at Turner's Cross this evening.

Their European Championship qualifier kicks off at 7.30.

Striker Sinclair Armstrong may be involved after making his senior debut against the Netherlands.

Elsewhere in the Group, Norway host Latvia and Turkey meet Italy.

At senior level, Scotland host England in a friendly at Hampden Park.

That game starts at 7.45.


GAELIC GAMES

Derry are looking for a new senior football manager after Ciaran Meenagh indicated he would not be taking the position on a full time basis.

Meenagh guided the Oak Leaf County to the Ulster title and an All Ireland semi final this year.

The Irish Examiner report that Malachy O'Rourke may be the front runner to take over.

O'Rourke managed Derry's Glen to the All Ireland club final last season and had successful spells in charge of Fermanagh and Monaghan.


HORSE RACING

Laytown stages its annual race meeting on the beach today.

Rachael Blackmore and Paul Townend will bid for a winner there and the first of six races goes to post at 4.45.

There's also a meeting at Galway which begins at 3.50.
