Vermes Gets Fined

Major League Soccer has issued an undisclosed fine to Sporting Kansas City manager and technical director Peter Vermes for his public criticisms of officials following Sporting KC’s match against the LA Galaxy on October 6.

“MLS takes very seriously the integrity of our competition.” said MLS Senior Vice President of Competition Jeff Agoos. “While we acknowledge the officiating issues during the match, MLS technical staffs have a clearly defined process to provide feedback so that each issue can be addressed by MLS and the Professional Referee Organization (PRO).”
