Jurgen Klinsmann to Serve One Game Suspension; Will Miss Gold Cup Final

USA manager Jurgen Klinsmann will serve a one game suspension from CONCACAF for his tirade against the referee in Wednesday’s game against Honduras, and will miss Sunday’s 2013 Gold Cup final against Panama.

Klinsmann was sent off in the 87th minute Wednesday after yelling at the referee. CONCACAF’s disciplinary committee confirmed Friday night that Klinsmann would be forced to serve the one-game suspension.

Given how well the US men’s national team has been performing throughout the tournament, the fact that Klinsmann will be missing from the sidelines shouldn’t have any dire consequence on the team’s performance on Sunday.

If the US manager attends the game, he’ll need to sit in the stands for the final, which will be televised on FOX on Sunday beginning at 3:30pm ET.

Here’s the footage of Klinsmann getting ejected from the match:
