Klinsmann Banned For Gold Cup Final
Juergen Klinsmann, the US Men’s National Team coach, has been suspended for the Gold Cup Final on Sunday when the US takes on Panama.
The ruling was announced late last night.
Klinsmann was sent off in the 87th minute of the Wednesday US 3-1 semifinal victory over Honduras for descent. He argued with the referee and slammed the ball down in anger, prompting the red card.
By FIFA rules, being sent off is an automatic suspension for the next match.
Hopefully, the form that the US has shown, holds and Klinsmann being suspended won’t matter.
