Carlos Alvarez

By DAN KARELL

Major League Soccer’s Disciplinary Committee announced on Thursday more fines and a suspension to three individuals.

The Committee announced that Chivas USA midfielder Carlos Alvarez is suspended for two matches and fined an undisclosed amount for violent conduct. The incident in question occurred last Sunday at Sporting Kansas City, when Alvarez kicked the ball at SKC midfielder Peterson Joseph as Joseph was on the ground after a foul.

Alvarez will serve his suspension in Chivas USA’s next two matches, May 12 against the Portland Timbers and May 19 against Real Salt Lake.

Also announced on Thursday is that Portland Timbers manager Caleb Porter and Philadelphia Union manager John Hackworth were fined an undisclosed amount for public criticism of the match officials following their most recent matches.
