Berlin: Two members of West Germany's 1966 World Cup football squad have dismissed suggestions players may have broken doping rules with cold treatment medicine.
"I've experienced a lot, but this really is complete and utter rubbish," former defender Willi Schulz told Sport1 television. "I rarely laughed so much and almost crashed the car into a tree when I heard of it on the radio. The allegations are ridiculous."
Juergen Grabowski, who scored five goals in 44 appearances for West Germany between 1966 and '74, said he was "flabbergasted" by the claims.
