RIO DE JANEIRO, Aug. 2 (Xinhua) -- Seattle Sounders defender and former Panama captain Roman Torres has been banned for 10 matches for doping, Major League Soccer (MLS) said on Friday.
The 33-year-old was also fined 20% of his annual salary after being found guilty of taking a performance-enhancing substance, according to an MLS statement.
Details of the substance and the circumstances of the failed test were not disclosed.
The decision prevents Torres from all football-related activities, including training and use of the Sounders' facilities.
Torres has made 70 appearances for the US club since his 2015 move from Colombia's Millonarios.
He has been capped 110 times for Panama and was a member of the team that played in last year's World Cup in Russia.
