MLS punishes 2 Salt Lake players, warns KC
NEW YORK -- Major League Soccer's disciplinary committee has suspended Real Salt Lake defender Abdoulie Mansally one game and fined him an undisclosed amount for head-butting D.C. United midfielder Perry Kitchen in the 61st minute of Saturday's game.
RSL forward Alvaro Saborio was fined for arguing with a referee at the end of the game, a 1-0 win by DC.
In other discipline announced by the league on Thursday, Sporting Kansas City was officially warned because several players confronted an official at the end of their 2-1 loss to Toronto. Future offenses will include fines to the team and coach.
