MLS suspends Felipe Hernandez for placing bets on two league games

Major League Soccer (MLS) has confirmed that one of its players from Sporting Kansas City has been placed under suspension for at least the rest of the season after he broke rules by betting on two league matches. Felipe Hernandez, a midfielder with Sporting Kansas City who scored his first MLS goal in a June 23rd match against the Colorado Rapids, was suspended by the league after he admitted that he placed bets on league matches. However, the 23-year-old soccer player stressed that none of the two league matches involved his own team.
