Houston's Clark suspended 3 games for slur

Published:

NEW YORK (AP) -- Dynamo midfielder Colin Clark has been suspended for three games by Major League Soccer and fined for directing a gay slur toward a ball boy during Houston's 2-0 loss at Seattle last week.

MLS Commissioner Don Garber also directed Clark to attend diversity and sensitivity training.

Garber says "Major League Soccer will not tolerate this type of behavior from its players or staff at any time, under any circumstances."

The 27-year-old apologized on Twitter and said he will personally say he's sorry to the ball boy.

Garber says, "I believe that he will learn from this incident."
