Eduardo Coudet Suspended Six Games

Fort Lauderdale Strikers midfielder Eduardo Coudet has been suspended an additional five games without pay beyond his mandatory one game red card suspension by the NASL Disciplinary Committee. Coudet was sent off in the 74th minute of Fort Lauderdale’s 3-1 defeat in Puerto Rico on Wednesday for violent conduct.

The straight red card offense occurred moments after a penalty kick had been awarded to the Islanders.

Coudet, who did not commit the foul which led to the penalty kick, confronted the referee in an aggressive manner, which included physical contact.“The league has an obligation to protect our match officials, and as a result Mr. Coudet will serve the appropriate suspension for his actions which have no place whatsoever in our game.” said NASL Commissioner David Downs.

Coudet will be unavailable for action until September 3rd when Fort Lauderdale hosts Montreal.

Well done Coudet… Just when the Strikers needed you the most with the team needing help in the midfield position, you go and make a fool of yourself. Congratulations, you’re lucky you aren’t suspended for the rest of the season.
