Scottish midfielder, Robert Snodgrass has asked for a personal hearing after being accused of insulting anti-doping officials at the Hammers Training Ground.
The West Ham midfielder, could face a one-match ban and £8,000 fine if found guilty, denies any wrongdoing.
Meanwhile, it was reported that Snodgrass was not expecting to be tested, nor did he refuse to take a test.
When announcing the charge earlier this month, the Football Association in a statement disclosed: “Robert Snodgrass has been charged with a breach of FA Rule E3(1).
“It is alleged the player used abusive and/or insulting words towards UK anti-doping officials who were visiting West Ham United’s training ground on 6 February 2019 to conduct out-of-competition testing.”
31-year-old Snodgrass, has played 34 times for West Ham this season, scoring four goals in all competitions.
The alleged incident took place in February at the Hammers’ training ground.
