What They're Saying

"Actually it was my teammate’s mistake that I had to iron out with a tactical foul. But that's why I'm there."

-- Schalke 04's U.S. midfielder Jermaine Jones blames a teammate for one of the five yellow cards that led to his second Bundesliga suspension of the season. Jones, who also missed Schalke’s Champions League loss to Galatasaray with a yellow-card suspension, bet Schalke general manager Horst Heldt in the preseason he wouldn’t get more than five yellows after 14 cautions in 20 games last season. His count this Bundesliga season after 19 games is five yellows and one straight red; three yellows in six Champions League games; and one yellow in two German Cup games. (Kicker Magazine)
