Major League Soccer has revealed its latest penalties for misconduct in recent weeks.
In the latest edition, the league has issued two fines for not leaving the pitch in time.
Here is a summary of all updates …
Brazilian defender Nathan has added brilliant organization and stability to Quake’s back line since joining FC Zurich in June.
But during last week’s 1-1 draw against Minnesota United, the 26-year-old was sent off for a challenging challenge against Loons defender Bakaye Dibassy, who went high in an attempt to recover after a hard touch.
VAR eventually confirmed Judge Victor Riva’s appeal, although Nathan remained on the court to plead not guilty.
According to the MLS league rules, this has landed Nathan with a fine of an undisclosed amount.
New England Revolution forward Arnor Ingvi Traustason was also fined for not leaving the pitch in time after being sent off against DC United.
With the Revs 2-1 up in a final 3-2 win, Traustason-who had already been booked in the first half-hacked Yamil Asad when the Argentine stepped forward on the counterattack.
Given how open New England’s defense was, combined with Asad’s momentum, this could obviously have been a good opportunity for DC and referee Ted Unkel saw fit to draw another yellow card.
Traustason was less than impressed with the conversation and was in no hurry to leave the pitch.
Both Nathan and Traustason missed their side’s subsequent games over the weekend, with the Quakes beating California’s rivals LA Galaxy 2-1, while Eastern Conference leaders New England beat FC Cincinnati 4-1 at Gillette Stadium.
