Altidore suspended an extra game, fined for violent conduct


The MLS Disciplinary Committee suspended Toronto FC forward Jozy Altidore an additional game and fined him an undisclosed amount for violent conduct, the league announced Wednesday.

Altidore received a red card in the ninth minute of the August 12 match against New York City FC after kicking defender Alexander Callens in the right leg.

The forward already served a suspension for the red card during TFC’s August 18 match against the San Jose Earthquakes, but Altidore will now miss the August 25 rivalry game against the Montreal Impact.

In addition to Altidore, the league also announced that Earthquakes midfielder Shea Salinas has been suspended an additional game for violent conduct.

In the 87th minute of the Quakes’ August 11 matchup against Colorado, the midfielder elbowed Dillon Serna in the face, leading to a mass confrontation between the two sides.

The midfielder missed the August 18 match against Toronto FC and will now miss the August 25 match against Real Salt Lake.

Salinas was also fined an undisclosed amount for failure to leave the field.
