GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota United defender Brent Kallman has been suspended 10 games for violating the MLS substance abuse policy.
The league announced Thursday he tested positive for an identified performance-enhancing substance. He will also be fined 20% of his salary.
Kallman will miss the United’s four remaining MLS regular-season matches and any playoff games. Minnesota is in third place in the Western Conference. Any remaining games will be served next season.
Kallman cannot train with the team or use its facilities during the regular season or playoffs, unless rehabilitating an injury. He is barred from tournaments, exhibitions, scrimmages and team events. He can be part of next season’s preseason training.
