Fire forward Franco suspended for transgression

  •  

NEW YORK (AP) - Major League Soccer's disciplinary committee has suspended Chicago Fire forward Guillermo Franco for an additional game and fined him an undisclosed amount for endangering the safety of an opponent.

Franco is accused of making a reckless challenge on Philadelphia Union midfielder Brian Carroll in the 78th minute of their game Wednesday night.

Because the referee issued a red card on the play, Franco will be suspended two games.

Franco will serve the first game of his suspension Saturday, when the Fire travel to face the New York Red Bulls. He will serve the second game Oct. 20 when the Fire play the New England Revolution.
