The manager of a "shocked and devastated" Jermaine Hue is questioning the Jamaica Football Federation's (JFF) liability after the Jamaican international midfielder was banned for nine months by the FIFA Disciplinary Panel following a antidoping rule violation. 'Jermaine (Hue) is shocked and devastated," said the Harbour View Football Club (HVFC) talisman's manager and uncle Michael Hue. "When he heard the news he was actually in training because he was hoping to be able to play in a short time. "In terms of the verdict, a nine month ban for the player; if you remember they had three matches in a short space of time ... Jermaine went to Honduras and complained about fatigue and was given the medication by the JFF's team doctor ... the doctor is employed to the football federation and it could have happened to any of the players there," Michael Hue said.
