Jones was found to be verbally abusive toward a doping control officer after he was asked to attend drug-testing after the Europa League final in May.


He will miss the UEFA Super Cup match against Real Madrid next week and United’s first Champions League group stage match in September and has also been fined €5,000.


Blind was charged with violation and non-compliance with Article 6.05, which states that “every player designated to undergo as doping control is personally responsible for reporting immediately to the doping control station as notified.”

According to Press Association Sport, Blind was reluctant to take a test as requested because he wanted to celebrate with his teammates, whose 2-0 victory over Ajax ensured their qualification for this season’s Champions League.

Blind was also fined €5,000 by UEFA.


United have been fined €10,000 over the rule breaches.
