Real Salt Lake coach Mike Petke is facing multiple sanctions fo his actions directed toward the officials after the club’s Leagues Cup defeat against Tigres UANL at Rio Tinto Stadium last Wednesday.
Leagues Cup suspension
Petke was suspended by the Leagues Cup Competition Committee for three Leagues Cup matches. Since RSL were eliminated, Petke’s three-game suspension will carry over to future Leagues Cup competitions.
Following a thorough review, MLS Commissioner Don Garber has suspended Petke for two additional MLS games, three MLS games total, and issued a $25,000 fine for the use of unacceptable and offensive language as well as repeated confrontational misconduct towards match officials.
