He scored in Russia’s 2-1 win at Turkey in the Uefa Nations League last Friday. Valencia’s director general Mateu Alemany said on Wednesday the club was unaware of the investigation, adding he believed the player’s father had been misquoted.“We haven’t been notified about what has been published. If the player was involved in an investigation then they [the agency] should have told the club and the player,” Alemany said. “We have had no communication in any form, he was subject to controls at Villarreal and at the World Cup. After reading everything, I think it’s an error in the transcription, because growth factors are not the same as growth hormones.” Share on Pinterest Spain’s anti-doping agency has closed its investigation into Russia and the Valencia winger Denis Cheryshev after his father Dmitri had told Russian media that his son had taken an injection containing a “growth hormone” to treat an injury. “The AEPSAD has closed the investigation, the decision has been communicated to the player, the Russian anti-doping agency and the World Anti Doping Agency (WADA),” a spokesman for the Spanish Agency for Health Protection in Sport, which is responsible for the fight against doping, said. Cheryshev, who scored four goals in Russia’s run to the World Cup quarter-finals, has denied ever taking a banned substance. “I have never used any prohibited substances and you don’t even have to think twice about it,” he said during the World Cup.
