Despite being placed on administrative leave by his club Phoenix Rising and slapped with a six-game suspension by the United Soccer League (USL), after allegedly making homophobic remarks, Jamaican international Junior Flemmings is said to be in good mental and physical shape, according to his agent.
Damani Ralph, a former national player himself, declined to comment on his client and countryman’s suspension, but told The Gleaner that the striker was doing well in spite of the controversy surrounding him.
“At the moment there is no comment on the Junior Flemmings suspension,” said Ralph, when contacted yesterday. “I can comment that he’s in good shape mentally and physically.”
Flemmings, who has scored 29 goals in 43 appearances for Phoenix Rising since signing for them in 2019, will remain on administrative leave until the end of his contract, which expires in November. In addition to the suspension, the league also fined Flemmings an undisclosed amount.
