Segares' penalty is doubled

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The red card that defender Gonzalo Segares drew in Saturday's 1-1 draw against Los Angeles meant an automatic one-game suspension plus a $250 fine. Now Major League Soccer's Disciplinary Committee has decided that wasn't enough.
After reviewing the incident in which Segares collide with Galaxy defender Leonardo the Disciplinary Committee has added a second game to the suspension and another $250 to the fine. Segares will miss Wednesday's home game against Toronto and Saturday's road match at Real Salt Lake.
In a statement issued by MLS the Disciplinary Committee increased the suspension and fine on Segares because of ``the reckless nature of the action that endangered the safety of his opponent.''
