    MOSCOW, March 4, 2004. (RIA Novosti) - President of Moscow Spartak football club Andrey Chervichenko is satisfied with today's verdict on Titov's case brought down by Control-Disciplinary committee of the Russian Football Union. This was disclosed by Mr. Chervichenko to a RIA Novosti correspondent on Thursday.

    The committee disqualified Spartak and Russian National Team's halfback for 6 months. Within the stated period Mr. Titov has no right to play in the Russian League and Cup matches.

    "This would probably be the most becoming for us decision in the light of the current situation," the Spartak President noted.

    FIFA and UEFA could have demanded from the Russian Football Union the punishment similar to the one brought on January 21st - 12 month-ban, Mr. Chervichenko stressed. Meanwhile, we have the decision on behalf of the Russian part, which will be announced to international football organizations and they will have to abide with it, he added.

    The decision on the 6-month ban comes into force from January 22nd, i.e. from the date of the UEFA's verdict on the player's ban, Executive Secretary of the Committee bureau Anatoly Grokhovsky disclosed to a RIA Novosti correspondent. In accordance with the UEFA's decision, Egor Titov was banned for 12-months period from the matches held under the aegis of this organization.

    The decision of the Control-Disciplinary committee was taken unanimously by all present at the session members, Mr. Grokhovsky said.

    Mr. Titov was disqualified by the UEFA in connection with his bromontan positive blood test. Bromontan is included in the list of prohibited drugs for athletes.
