Real Salt Lake midfielder Javier Morales is known for his playmaking ability and creativity, but it was his mixed martial arts skills that got him into a bit of trouble.
Morales was issued a one-match suspension on Monday for delivering a knee to the groin of Seattle Sounders midfielder during their match last Thursday. Alonso had just fouled Morales when the two had words before Morales struck Alonso with his knee.
Morales will now be suspended for RSL's upcoming match on Saturday against the Chicago Fire. His absence will be a blessing for a Fire team looking to halt a five-match winless skid.
What do you think of the suspension? Think it should have been longer? Still see RSL beating Chicago without Morales?
