The MLS club terminated the contract of a football player who hit a player in the amateur league
MOSCOW, September 19 – The North American Major League Soccer (MLS) club Montreal has terminated the contract with midfielder Matko Milevic, according to the league’s official website.
MLS said in a release that the 22-year-old American’s agreement had been terminated due to player conduct detrimental to the league and a breach of standard contract.
Earlier, Canadian media reported that Milevich was banned for life from the Quebec Amateur League for hitting another player in the face after an altercation. It was noted that the footballer used a false name to play three matches in a closed amateur league, which is a violation of the agreement with MLS.
Montreal head coach Hernan Losada said Thursday that the club is aware of the situation and that the league is investigating. By decision of the club, Milevich was suspended from training.
Milevich has played for Montreal since 2021. In total, he played 45 matches for the team, in which he scored 3 goals and made 4 assists. Together with the club, the footballer became the winner of the Canadian Championship.
