Disgruntled Jese \'disciplined\' by Stoke confirms Hughes

Published on: 07 December 2017

Stoke boss Mark Hughes has revealed on-loan winger Jose Rodriguez has been disciplined by the club for leaving the bench early in the Potters 2-1 win over Swansea City on Saturday.

The PSG man lost his place in Hughes' side after the defeat to Bournemouth in October and has made just two substitute appearances since.

"He made a mistake," added Hughes. "He's been disciplined for that. He understands it wasn't the right decision at that time.

"It's been addressed, we've obviously highlighted what he needs to do in the future. He's a little bit frustrated, he wants to play, as all players do."

Hughes added that Jese wouldn't be available for the weekend's meeting with Tottenham after returning home to Gran Canaria following the premature birth of his son.

"Unfortunately he's not available this weekend because he's had to go back, which is a real worry for him and everybody concerned," said Hughes. "We send him and his family our best wishes."
