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.


  1. I’m with you. I don’t want to see him represent the US. We may not have the most successful team in the world, but American players are known for having strong character, and this kind of cowardly move goes against that.

  2. In the video on youtube I see no stomp being made by Jones. I think he needs to just go to the EPL and stay the hell out of Germany. He’s always getting yellows and being mistreated it’s time for him to move on to England!

  3. How about DeMerit for a hard player? Boca? Beckerman? there are others

    anyway, hard is different than implosive, which a red card is to any team. I like Jones on the USMNT, but I don’t trust him because of these things, so I don’t like him on the USMNT
