The Major League Soccer Disciplinary Committee today issued a fine and one-game suspension to Real Salt Lake midfielder Javier Morales for actions taken against Seattle Sounders FC midfielder Osvaldo Alonso in the Salt Lake at Seattle game Thursday. The unsportsmanlike action which endangered the safety of his opponent was not seen by the officiating crew, and Morales did not receive any discipline during the match. After reviewing the incident, the MLS Disciplinary Committee decided that the action constituted a red card offense and Morales should be suspended for one game and fined $250. Morales will serve his suspension during Salt Lake’s next League game Saturday against the Chicago Fire. Fines collected are donated to MLS W.O.R.K.S., Major League Soccer's community outreach initiative dedicated to addressing important social issues affecting young people and serves as a platform for both League and club philanthropic programs. MLS W.O.R.K.S. seeks to establish Major League Soccer as a leader for improving the lives of people through sport. For more information visit the website at www.MLSsoccer.com/works.
Does anyone remember the incident? I don't think I saw it from the stadium.
And meanwhile, I guess this means no action against Shalrie Joseph for his slap to Patrick Ianni's neck in the New England game.
