DC United attacker Dwayne DeRosario will miss tomorrow’s match against the Houston Dynamo after the MLS Disciplinary Committe levied a two match ban after a pre-season incident that including Danny Cruz of the Philadelphia Union.
DeRosario will serve a two game suspension and had an appeal turned down.
This will be a blow to DC United and does take away one of the game’s great story-lines for Saturday’s opener . DeRosario led the Dynamo to two MLS Cups in 2006 , 2007.
DeRosario head butted former Dynamo and DC teammate Danny Cruz in a pre-season match.
To the credit of Ben Olsen he said the incident paints DC United in a bad light but also went on to say that pre-season can become the “wild, wild, west” and it is tiring to have his attacking players getting kicked prior to the regular season .
