Following the first straight red of his professional career, Schalke 04 midfielder Jermaine Jones has been suspended for four matches. Schalke has four hours to appeal, which they plan to.
This means that Jones will miss:
Dec. 15 vs. SC Freiburg
Jan. 18 vs. Hannover 96
Jan. 26 @ FC Augsburg
Feb. 2 vs. SpVgg Greuther Furth
With his return likely to come February 9 at Bayern Munich.
Since Jones won’t have anything to do in January, will he again spend January in California with the MLS-Scandanivan camp leading into the February 6 hex opener at Honduras? He did that earlier this year after his eight-week suspension.
