Motherwell's Humphrey: I didn't know I was breaking a Jamaica curfew

Motherwell winger Chris Humphrey has admitted he did not know he was breaking a Jamaica national team curfew last week.

The 24-year old, along with Birmingham City's Marlon King, has been suspended by the Jamaican FA for two upcoming 2014 World Cup qualifiers for breaking curfew when he went out after a recent match against Panama.

Manager Theodore Whitmore stamped his zero tolerance message on the pair by banning them for the games against Guatemala and Antigua & Barbuda but Humphrey claims he had no idea that he was stepping outside the rules.

"It was a huge honour to be asked to represent Jamaica. I am very disappointed I will not be available to try and help the team in the next two games against Guatemala and Antigua & Barbuda," he said.

"I would just like to clarify a few points as I believe there has been a communication problem.

"After the game in Panama I did go out. It was late after the game and to unwind I went out for an hour.

"I had not been informed of any curfew and no one told me we were not allowed to go out.

"I fully accept the fact that I did go out and on that basis I have apologised to the team and accept responsibility.

"Naturally I wish the team all the very best in the forthcoming games."
