World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) president Canadian lawyer Dick Pound speaks during the World conference on Doping in Sport in Madrid, November 17 2007. Pound left the door open for team sports such as football to change the new anti-doping Code November 17. The new Code, which is due to be implemented from January 1, 2009, has been criticised by football’s world governing body FIFA for not allowed banned players to continue training with their teams.
