New York's Juninho handed additional one-game suspension

[MLS DISCIPLINE] New York Red Bulls midfielder Juninho was handed an additional one-game suspension and fined an undisclosed amount for kicking the ball at Sporting Kansas City goalkeeper Jimmy Nielsen during a deadball situation in stoppage time of last Wednesday's MLS match New York lost, 1-0, at home.

The MLS Disciplinary Committee determined that Juninho’s actions constituted violent conduct that endangered the safety of his opponent.
 
Juninho was issued a red card, which carried an automatic one-game suspension and fine. He served that suspension, missing last Saturday’s game against New England.

His additional one-game suspension means he will sit out Saturday's game at Toronto FC.
