Humphrey punished for curfew breach
Updated Monday, 4th June 2012
Chris Humphrey's ambition to take part in the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Guatemala and Antigua have been ended after he was excluded from the Jamaican squad for curfew breaking.
"The Jamaica Football Federation wishes to advise that Head Coach of the National Senior team, Theodore ‘Tappa’ Whitmore has taken the decision to drop Marlon King and Chris Humphrey from the squad for the first two World Cup Qualifying games for breaking curfew rules.
This decision is consistent with the head’s Coach’s zero tolerance approach for acts of indiscipline and indiscretion.
The team has returned to its training base at Braco and will continue preparations for the opening World Cup Qualifier on Friday, June 8 at 8:30 pm at the National Stadium."
Humphrey and King were room mates in the Hotel El Panama in the Central American country for Friday's friendly international and were deemed to have broken curfew rules the night of the game.
Opinion among Jamaican fans seems to be split on the decision. Some argue that the squad rules are there to be obeyed but others suggest that a quiet word or a fine would have been more appropriate.
In any event it seems that Humphrey's season has now ended and he can have a few weeks relaxation before starting pre-season training at Fir Park later this month.
