Good hair day for Romário

romario-hair.jpgFormer Brazil striker Romário has escaped a 120-day playing ban.

The 41 year old failed an anti-doping test early this year after the banned substance finasterida was detected. 


The player claimed the drug was present in a hair treatment product he was using for his rapidly receding hairline.

 Yesterday, Romário was acquitted by Brazil’s sports tribunal (Superior Tribunal de Justiça Desportiva).  

Two weeks ago, Romário resigned as coach at Vasco. However, he is still registered as a player at the São Januário.  After falling out with Vasco president Eurico Miranda, it is unlikely Romário will return to the club. 

Flamengo have already expressed an interest in resigning the player.
