MLS REVOKES MICHAEL PARKHURST’S RED CARD FOR COLUMBUS CREW SC

Michael Parkhurst was shown red in the game against New York City on Saturday in what later happened to be a wrong decision by referee  Ted Unkel.

However, the defender has had the red card decision appealed by Columbus Crew SC by Major League Soccer on the ground that Ted Unkel had made the wrong decision. Referee Ted Unkel awarded New York City FCN a penalty after Columbus defender Tyson Wahl denied Kwadwo Poku a clear goal-scoring opportunity, but then dismissed Parkhurst.

Columbus Crew SC look to reclaim last season’s Eastern Conference Champion form as they take on a struggling, but potent New York City FC squad in Week 7. The mistake was later noted by the march official in his report, thereby prompting Monday’s swift decision.

With the reversed decision, MLS ruled that Wahl will serve the one-game suspension against the Houston Dynamo on Saturday. Elsewhere, in the game between New England and Orlando City a similar controversy had taken place.

Kaka’s team, Orlando City was punished by referee Baldomero Toledo by awarding a penalty to New England. The penalty decision had caused Orlando City to lose two points as the game ended 2-2.

However, Kaka has defended MLS referee Baldomero Toledo for changing his late decision to award New England a late penalty in Sunday’s 2-2 draw.

After Orlando City took a 2-1 lead in stoppage time after a separate controversial decision, Toledo whistled Servando Carrasco for handling the ball, initially giving a free kick on the edge of the box.

But after conferring with his assistant, the referee ruled the infraction incurred inside the box and pointed. Kaka currently plays for Orlando City and he has scored 11 goals out of his 2699 minutes of playing for the club.
