CONCACAF suspends Jurgen Klinsmann for Gold Cup final
United States manager Jurgen Klinsmann has been suspended for Sunday's Gold Cup final.
United States men's national team manager Jurgen Klinsmann has been suspended for one match by CONCACAF'S disciplinary committee after being sent off in the closing minutes of the U.S.'s 3-1 victory over Honduras Wednesday.
The United States will face Panama Sunday in the Gold Cup final in Chicago.
Klinsmann was displeased with some aggressive play from the Honduras side late in Wednesday's match, leading to his ejection.
Below is CONCACAF's full statement regarding the matter:
Following a review today by the CONCACAF Disciplinary Committee, in accordance with Article VI.1b of the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup Regulations, it was decided that United States national team head coach Jurgen Klinsmann has been suspended for one match. This decision was reached in accordance with Articles 18.4, 19.1, 19.2 and 20 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code.
Mr. Klinsmann was ejected from the technical area for showing dissent towards the referee by throwing the ball in a violent manner during the CONCACAF Gold Cup semifinal match against Honduras on July 24, 2013, in Arlington, Texas, USA.
His suspension will be served in the USA’s next match, which is scheduled to take place on July 28, 2013, at the Gold Cup final in Chicago.
This decision cannot be appealed in accordance with the FIFA DC Art. 118.
