Seattle D Leo Gonzalez suspended for 1 game
Seattle Sounders defender Leo Gonzalez has been suspended one
game and fined for stomping on the leg of Philadelphia’s Sheanon
Williams late in last Saturday’s game.
The discipline from Major League Soccer was handed down on
Tuesday. Gonzalez will miss Seattle’s game on Wednesday night at FC
Dallas. The incident happened in the 88th minute of Seattle’s 1-0
win on Saturday. Gonzalez stomped on the right leg of Williams
after he slid to pass the ball upfield.
The league also announced that an independent review panel
determined New England forward Fernando Cardenas was incorrectly
shown a red card against Real Salt Lake. The red card was appealed
by the Revolution and MLS has rescinded the one-game suspension and
fine against Cardenas.
