Roberto Carlos Slams German TV network ARD Over Doping allegations

Brazilian Legendary Defender Roberto Carlos slams German TV network ARD for Doping allegations, which stated that he took illegal stimulants and saying his name was included in a list in a document given by Brazil's anti-doping agency to prosecutors in Sao Paulo in 2015.

Carlos who won La Liga four times as well as three Champions League titles with Real Madrid in an 11-year playing career at the Santiago Bernabeu and a World Cup glory in 2002, denied the claims, and promised to take legal action in a post on his official Facebook page.

"I strongly reject the irresponsible accusations made by the German ARD network," Carlos' statement read.

"I reaffirm that I have never used any device that would allow me to take advantage of my colleagues.

"The report quotes the name of a doctor I never knew in my life, and my lawyers have been called to uphold the alleged false allegations in the matter.

"At the same time, the story states in an extremely vague way that I was seen in his office in July 2002, when I returned to the country after the World Cup with the Brazilian National Team.

"I went to Brasilia to participate in the awards ceremonies and, soon after, I returned to Madrid, in Spain, without any passage through Piracicaba. In addition, the report does not reproduce any evidence of my alleged involvement in the case.

"Throughout my career, I have always advocated fair play. The lying accusations against me are completely contrary to this thought.

"In more than 20 years of my career I have never tested positive for any substances that would change my performance."
