Clint Dempsey Officially Suspended & Jurgen Klinsman Is Not Happy


 

 

clint_dempseyThe MLS disciplinary committee officially suspended Clint Dempsey on Friday. He wI’ll miss the next two games for a low blow against a Toronto FC defender.

USMNT Head coach was not happy about Dempsey’s suspension . In the interview with Soccer by Ives, Klinsman had this to say:

here is a foul against him in the sixth minute that should have been a red card. The persistent fouling continued throughout the game, and he’s getting punished for a reaction following all those fouls. Yes he made a mistake, but if opponents don’t get penalized for consistently fouling, it only encourages them to continue that approach.

~Jurgen Klinsmann~

The suspension comes after the Seattle Sounders came off of a disappointing loss against Toronto at home. They will hit the road on Friday, heading into Canada to take on the Montreal Impact. ( the game was moved from Saturday to Sunday at 1 pm PST).
