The MLS Disciplinary Committee has issued four fines and one suspension after Week 26 of the 2022 season.
The MLS Disciplinary Committee has found CF Montréal midfielder Matko Miljevic guilty of simulation/embellishment in the 87th minute of Montréal’s match against the New England Revolution on August 20.
Miljevic has been issued a one-match suspension and fined an undisclosed amount for the violation. He will serve the suspension in Montréal’s match against Chicago Fire FC on August 27.
The play was reviewed under Disciplinary Committee Parameter 3, in which officials see an incident, and do not issue a red card or act on a case of clear and obvious simulation/embellishment that meets the conditions for suspension. The Disciplinary Committee may review the play for further disciplinary action, over and above the mandatory suspension and fine. Under Parameter 3, supplemental discipline (suspension and/or fine) will be administered if the Disciplinary Committee believes the offense is a clear and unequivocal red card, egregious in nature, and/or it must act to protect player safety, and/or it must protect the integrity of the game, and/or clear and obvious embellishment.
