Marquez suspended one game by Red Bulls

New York Red Bulls defender Rafa Marquez will miss Saturday

night’s match vs. Portland after being suspended by coach Hans

Backe on Friday.

Marquez was critical of teammates after Wednesday’s 3-1 loss to

Real Salt Lake at home.

A designated player, Marquez has no goals and just four assists

this season, as the Red Bulls have stumbled to a 7-7-15 record.

They were in fifth place in the Eastern Conference as Friday

night’s action began.
