Stephen Dank, the sports scientist at the centre of doping allegations at AFL club Essendon, has spoken publicly for the first time since the story broke.
The Australian Crime Commission released a report on Thursday which found that organised crime and drugs have infiltrated Australian sport.
The Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) is investigating whether the Bombers breached any rules by providing players with unnamed supplements.
In an interview to be aired on on Monday, the man dubbed "The Pharmacist" said he was an obvious target for blame.
"Obviously because I manage the supplement program, the finger was going to be pointed in my direction," he tells 7:30.
"I've got no specific reasons why. Obviously because of my involvement and that was an area I was managing ... if they were going to point the finger they were going to point the finger towards me."
A day before the ACC released its findings, Essendon threw itself at the mercy of ASADA and the AFL's integrity unit after revealing concerns over supplements supplied to its players.
Dank worked with the Bombers in 2012 and had previously been employed with a number of other sporting organisations including NRL club Manly from 2006-10.
Yesterday his lawyer, Greg Stanton, said Dank had been made a scapegoat.
"He stands, if I may use the phrase, as a sacrificial lamb on the altar of sport which this country worships and adores on a day-to-day basis," Stanton said.
"Sure he does (protest his innocence), but he's doing so not in the context or in the criteria of someone who's facing an allegation or charge.
"There is a degree of innuendo, rumour, scuttlebutt and tenuous information floating around, none of which is very specific at all.
"In the face of that, he says, 'I've done nothing wrong'."
Stanton said all would be revealed in Monday's interview, which is set to include detailed accounts of his actions at both the Bombers and other clubs.
