Timmy Chandler emerged victorious in a clash of Americans, but the real highlight of Sunday’s action was the sideline dismissal of an American manager.
David Wagner was sent off in stoppage time of Huddersfield Town’s 2-1 win over Leeds United. The former U.S. Men’s National Team forward clashed with Leeds manager Garry Monk in the game’s final moments after celebrating what turned out to be the winning goal, prompting players from both sides to get involved before both managers were sent to the stands.
In Germany, Chandler and Terrence Boyd went head-to-head, and it was Chandler that came out on top of a 2-0 Eintracht Frankfurt win. Aron Johannsson also saw the field in Bundesliga action but his substitute appearance wasn’t enough to lift Werder Bremen in a loss to Augsburg.
Elsewhere, Omar Gonzalez and Ventura Alvarado settled for draws in Liga MX action.
