Inter striker Mohammed Kallon and Parma midfielder Manuele Blasi have had drug bans reduced after appeal

The pair had been suspended after testing positive for performance-enhancing steroids this season.

The Italian Football Federation’s appeal commission confirmed that Kallon’s eight-month ban had been reduced to six months and Blasi’s from six to five months.

Kallon tested positive for metabolites of the steroid nandrolone after Inter’s game with Udinese in September while Blasi failed a test for norandrosterone after Parma’s game with Perugia on September 14.
