Jermaine Jones may have issued an apology for his stomp on Marco Reus' injured foot, but the German Football Federation (DFB) is having no remorse on the U.S. international.
The DFB has handed Jones an eight-week ban for his actions in Schalke 04's 3-1 loss to Borussia Moenchengladbach in the German Cup Round of 16. The incident had been under investigation by the DFB since it took place two weeks ago.
The lengthy suspension is affective across all competitions and means that Jones will miss six league games.
Jones will not be available for selection for Schalke until it plays SC Freiburg on March 2.
