Leon Bailey Announces Decision to Take a Break from Reggae Boyz Duties

On Wednesday Leon bailey revealed in an interview with the ‘Let’s Be Honest’ podcast hosted by Jaisfrais that he had been contemplating taking a break from national duties even before his suspension.

The decision to suspend him, he stated, did not come as a surprise.

Coach Heimir Hallgrimsson took the drastic step of dropping Bailey, along with Trevante Stewart, for breaking curfew during the last Jamaica camp.

Bailey, who has been pivotal for Aston Villa in the English Premier League this season, expressed his disbelief at the suspension, citing his good relationship with the coach and their open communication channels.


Despite his disappointment, Bailey highlighted his growing fatigue with national team responsibilities, citing the draining nature of the commitments.

Bailey expected the coach to be more understanding, stating that he felt the decision to suspend him was harsh.

The absence of Bailey from the squad leaves a glaring gap in Jamaica’s attacking options, further exacerbated by the suspensions of other key players.

Former Everton winger Demarai Gray and leading goalscorer Shamar Nicholson are both serving suspensions for the first game against the USA, leaving the team in a precarious position.

With Bailey’s suspension adding to Jamaica’s woes, the Reggae Boyz face an uphill battle as they prepare to take on the United States in the crucial Nations League semi-finals clash.

The team will undoubtedly need to rally together and find alternative strategies to overcome the challenges posed by the absence of their star players.
