US boss Klinsmann backing Jones to sort Schalke situation

USA national team boss Juergen Klinsmann is confident Jermaine Jones will sort out his situation at German club Schalke for the better.

The 32-year old midfielder is believed to be unhappy at Gelsenkirchen and is reportedly seeking a winter departure from the Veltins-Arena.

With 2014 being a World Cup year, Klinsmann is aware that it is important for Jones to play regularly and he expects the former Bayer Leverkusen and Eintracht Frankfurt man to do what is best for both he and his country.

"We see that Jermaine Jones has a bit of a struggle with Schalke right now," Klinsmann told ussoccer.com.

"It's not his first one, so he will figure out a way to get out of that one. A move maybe somewhere else or maybe he finds his way back into the starting lineup with Schalke, which he often did."
