MLS suspends Schelotto for elbow on Umana

Guillermo Barros Schelotto (mlsnet.com)

Major League Soccer has suspended Columbus Crew star Guillermo Barros Schelotto for one match for throwing an elbow and hitting Chivas USA defender Michael Umana during the Crew's 1-0 win last Saturday.

Schelotto will miss the Crew's match against the New York Red Bulls at Red Bull Arena on Thursday night after the league ruled on Tuesday on the incident, which was missed by the match referee. Here is the video of the incident.

Columbus will now be without Schelotto as well as starters Robbie Rogers and Chad Marshall (both with the U.S. national team) heading into Thursday night's Eastern Conference showdown.
