NEW YORK (AP) _ New England defender Carlos Llamosa was suspended for one more game and fined an additional $1,000 for being ejected in last Sunday’s loss at Chicago.
Major League Soccer’s disciplinary committee on Thursday suspended Llamosa for this Sunday’s semifinal playoff game against Columbus. Llamosa missed the Revolution’s 2-0 victory over Chicago on Wednesday under the original suspension for his actions.
Llamosa was fined an additional $1,000. The red card carried with it a $500 fine.
Llamosa was shown his second yellow card of the night in the 90th minute for a hard foul on the Fire’s Dema Kovalenko near the sideline. Llamosa’s prolonged and aggressive dissent toward the officials and his failure to leave the field after referee Ricardo Valenzuela gave him the red card resulted in the additional fine and suspension.
