Villarreal midfielder Marcos Senna has been suspended by UEFA after a positive drugs test in a European game, the Spanish club announced.

Brazilian Senna has been invited to give evidence to UEFA’s disciplinary committee.

Villarreal said they would not comment on the matter before an expected verdict from the committee on November 11.

Senna, 28, had been included in the squad to play away to Lazio in the UEFA Cup on Thursday but will now not be eligible.
