Leo Gonzalez fined for “embellishing contact” in Wednesday’s game at Real Salt Lake

Sounders FC defender Leo Gonzalez has been fined an undisclosed amount by the MLS Disciplinary Committee “for embellishment contact” in a first-half incident with Real Salt Lake forward Alvaro Saborio on Wednesday.

You can judge what happened for yourself by watching the video posted above.

Saborio and Seattle’s Jhon Kennedy Hurtado were booked in the aftermath.

This marks the sixth time the Sounders have faced retroactive discipline from MLS this season. Gonzalez, defender Zach Scott and midfielder Osvaldo Alonso have all been suspended for dangerous tackles. Midfielder Alvaro Fernandez was also fined for embellishment back in March and forward Eddie Johnson was fined for an inappropriate gesture to fans after a road game in Chicago.
