  • MLS player given red card for rocketing ball into stands bloodying fan

While New York City FC's goalkeeper was responsible for an own goal for the ages away at Minnesota on Saturday, New York's other side - the Red Bulls - had one of their own men sent off in weird circumstances in the final seconds of their game against Sporting Kansas City on Sunday.

The sequence occurred in the 93rd minute of the Red Bulls' 2-2 draw Sunday at Children's Mercy Park in Kansas City.

Sporting KC sit seventh in the Western Conference with nine points, while the Red Bulls are ninth in the East and are three points adrift of the top seven.

After being disappointed by a decision of the referee, Kaku headed over to the ball as it nestled by the touchline and vented his pent-up fury. His rip cleared the sideline fence and went into the crowd, where it hit a fan from point-blank range.

In a gesture of goodwill and perhaps feeling shamed by their team-mate's actions, many Red Bulls players approached the stands to check on the fan immediately after the final whistle.

Sources told ESPN and the Kansas City Star the fan was left with a bloody face from the hit.

Le réseau Orange internet et 4G touché par une panne importante
En plus de la panne que connait Orange , les services de Google sont inaccessibles selon de nombreux internautes en Europe. Le service est bien rétabli et nominal depuis 12h45. "Nous nous excusons de la gêne occasionnée".

According to some of the Red Bulls players there, they believed that Kaku was trying to fire the ball off the boards, but not into the fans.

"I want to take the time and apologize for my actions during tonight's match", Kaku said.

'As a competitor, I was frustrated with myself and took out my frustrations in a way that is not acceptable.

Then in March, the Red Bulls unexpectedly left Kaku out of the matchday squad for a game against San Jose, with coach Chris Armas saying only that, "We had a minor internal issue, and we dealt with that quickly".

"The matter will continue to be discussed internally and we will have no further comment at this time".

A melee involving plenty of players from both sides soon followed the incident, for which Kaku was eventually shown a straight red card.
