Even when he is suspended Real Salt Lake head coach Mike Petke still can’t stay out of trouble.
While serving a ban for his team against the Colorado Rapids July 21, the former Red Bulls boss was found in violation of the Major League Soccer’s suspended coach policy, the league said Friday.
Suspended coaches are prohibited from entering the bench area, locker room, or field level. Petke has been issued an undisclosed fine for entering one of the prohibited areas.
The league did mention which area it was.
Last month MLS issued Petke a one-game suspension for on-field misconduct during his team’s match against Minnesota United FC. That suspension was in addition to the one-game suspension as a result of being ejected from the game.
