Gabigol’s defense filed a request for a suspensive effect on the punishment imposed by the Anti-Doping Court of Justice with the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), according to “ESPN”. As a result, the attacker Flamengo may return to play before the period stipulated by the sanction.

There is no date for the evaluation of the number 10’s case, but the club’s expectation is that the player could be listed again by Tite in April. At this moment, the athlete cannot even train with his teammates at Ninho do Urubu.

Flamengo understands that this is the striker’s only chance to return to play for the club in 2024, while the player’s contract ends in December. This is because the judgment of the appeal itself should not take place until the end of the year.

Rubro-Negro even registered Gabigol for the group stage of Libertadores 2024, which ends in May. The athlete was not listed for the team’s debut against Millonarios, in Colombia.

Last week, the attacker was punished by five votes against four due to an attempted fraud in an anti-doping test. As a result, the athlete received a sanction in which he will have to stop playing professional football until April 2025 if the defense act is not effective.
