Manchester United centre-back Phil Jones will be suspended for United's Super Cup encounter with Real Madrid as well as United's first CL group game.
The reprimand comes after the centre-back verbally abused a doping control officer in the wake of the Red Devils' Europa League final win over Ajax back in May. His Dutch teammate Daley Blind has also got himself in similar hot water. He has escaped a suspension but has been fined €5,000 along with Jones. The club have also been served with a further €10,000 sanction. It is understood that neither player is guilty of actually doping. United have three days to appeal. Phil Jones will reportedly appeal his punishment. The decision perhaps sheds light on José Mourinho's selection of Lindelof and Smalling together in a centre-back partnership in pre-season, clearly building a rapport between the duo ahead of big games to come.
