Written by Patrick Echatah

In a statement, the league noted that Matt Miazga’s suspension and the undisclosed fine were the result of “misconduct” following the playoff game against the New York Red Bulls on November 4.

Following his team’s triumph, Miazga reportedly went into the officials’ locker room at Red Bull Arena, according to The Athletic and The Philadelphia Inquirer.

The MLS referees union, PSRA, stated that “a player gained unauthorized entry into the officials’ locker room” and that the player had acted “in an aggressive and hostile manner” before being removed by stadium security. However, the association did not name Miazga or any other player.

After receiving two yellow cards during the game and another during the penalty shootout, Miazga was unable to participate in the conference semifinal matchup against the Philadelphia Union on Saturday.

Pat Noonan, the head coach of Cincinnati, stated last week that Miazga had arrived in the referee’s room well after the game had ended, rather than charging in at the last whistle.

“It’s an hour and a half after the game. He has got a pizza box in his hand,” Noonan said. “I think people have this notion that he was in his cleats, running into that room. It has been fabricated, what happened.”

Inter Miami CF’s head coach, Gerardo “Tata” Martino, has declared that the Club is once again interested in bringing in former teammate Luis Suárez during the upcoming winter transfer window.

Martino stated that the team is still interested in signing the 36-year-old Uruguayan during a press conference the day before Miami’s final MLS home game, which ended in a 2-2 draw with Charlotte FC.
