AJACCIO, France – A day after he was cleared of doping during the CONCACAF Gold Cup, Mexican international goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa signed with the French Lige 1 club Ajaccio on Saturday.
Ochoa, 25, signed a three-year deal with the club, Ajaccio announced.
His signing was held up because he had been one of five Mexican players suspended by the Mexican Football Federation for testing positive for the banned substance clenbuterol.
The MFF announced on Friday that it would not punish Ochoa and his four teammates — Francisco Rodriguez, Edgar Duenas, Antonio Naelson and Christian Bermudez — opening the door for his official signing.
Ochoa, who has played 45 times internationally, has represented El Tri at the 2006 and 2010 World Cups.
He also has been linked with Paris Saint-Germain and Olympiakos (Greece).
