NEW YORK — MLS Commissioner Don Garber suspended Seattle Sounders defender Marc Burch for three games and fined him an undisclosed amount Saturday night for using unacceptable and offensive language toward an opponent Thursday night in a playoff game against Real Salt Lake.
Garber also ordered Burch to attend diversity and sensitivity training.
Burch will sit out the two-game Western Conference finals against the Los Angeles Galaxy.
If the Sounders advance to the MLS Cup, he will sit out the title game.
