Jones played a full 90 minutes in the USMNT‘s 2-0 win over Panama yesterday but he revealed that he is now ready for surgery after a tough month with the national team.
The 33-year-old midfielder revealed the news on his official Instagram page earlier today: “Yeah, tomorrow’s my surgery, so I’ll be out for a couple of weeks but then I’ll get back sharp,” he said in a video.
“Thanks again for yesterday. It was amazing. Big support in LA. Thank you guys.”
Jones quickly established himself as a star player in MLS with the Revs after completing his switch to the club in August as he made 15 appearances in the regular season and MLS Playoffs combined.
It was undoubtedly Jones’s influence that helped the Revs to reach the 2014 MLS Cup final, though they ultimately fell to the LA Galaxy in extra-time.
The German-born midfield enforcer will now face a race against time in order to be ready for the start of the new season.
He has reassured fans by saying he will only be out for a “couple of weeks” and New England supporters will certainly hope that is the case as they start the new season against the Seattle Sounders on Sunday, March 8.
