Dani Benitez

Granada midfielder Dani Benitez tested positive for cocaine after his team’s La Liga 1-0 win over Real Betis in February, the Spanish press reported on Thursday.

The 26-year-old had come on as a substitute in the February 16 fixture after an hour before being sent off just 15 minutes later for a violent tackle.

The As newspaper said that Benitez faces a fine and two-year suspension if his B-sample also proves positive.
