After his last German title Neu tested positive for anabolic steroids, and was suspended for one year. At the age of 69 he gave an interview to a German newspaper and declared that he had taken anabolic steroids for years and all his colleagues did so as well, stating that even sports officials and physicians in West Germany were involved and everybody was informed. He worked as an English and sports teacher for 35 years.
