Jurgen Klinsmann will be suspended during the United States' Gold Cup final against Panama on Sunday, CONCACAF announced late Friday.
Klinsmann was dismissed by referee Walter Quesada after having a blowup late during the USMNT's 3-1 semifinal win Wednesday against Honduras. As you can see, below, Klinsmann was not happy about a foul call against DaMarcus Beasley in the 87th minute of the game, and Quesada apparently did not like to be shown up in such a manner.
Although coaches are not sent off in the same manner players are, being ejected by the referee was enough to convince a CONCACAF committee that Klinsmann should not be allowed to coach in the game. Martin Vasquez will coach the U.S. team in his absence.
The Gold Cup final will be held 4 p.m. Sunday at Chicago's Soldier Field. Panama beat Mexico, 2-1, to advance to the final.
