Toronto FC designated player Jozy Altidore may once again be hearing from MLS’ disciplinary committee this week, as the TFC striker was involved in another on-field incident during Sunday night’s 3-2 win over the Colorado Rapids.

After a ball was kicked up into the air, a clearly frustrated Altidore bulldozed through Colorado defender Lalas Abubakar, appearing to make little attempt to play the ball.

Altidore received a yellow card on the play, as TFC went on to win the match thanks to a second-half Jonathan Osorio winner.

If suspended, it would mark the second time in two seasons that the American has been forced to miss time after he was suspended two games for kicking New York City FC defender Alexander Callens on August 12, 2018.

So, have your say below. What’s a fair punishment for Altidore after Sunday’s incident against Colorado?


Will the TFC Striker be forced to miss some time?
