New York, NY (Sports Network) - The MLS Disciplinary Committee issued
sanctions to two Real Salt Lake players on Thursday, suspending and fining
defender Abdoulie Mansally while fining forward Alvaro Saborio.
In addition to his fine for an undisclosed amount, Mansally will serve a one-
game suspension for violent conduct exhibited during Real Salt Lake's match
against D.C. United on Saturday. It was determined that Mansally used his head
to strike United midfielder Perry Kitchen in the 61st minute.
Saborio has been fined an undisclosed amount for aggravated dissent toward the
referee in the 93rd minute of the same match.
The Disciplinary Committee also issued an official warning to Sporting Kansas
City regarding a violation of the league's mass confrontation policy during
the late stages of the club's loss at Toronto FC on Saturday. Future
violations of this policy by Sporting will result in fines for the club and
its head coach.
