Federation Internationale de Football Association bans Mexico soccer coach for six games for insulting language

Federation Internationale de Football Association bans Mexico soccer coach for six games for insulting language

Mexico will take on El Salvador in Group C play in the 2017 CONCACAF Gold Cup on Sunday, July 9 at 6 p.m.

Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio, who was slapped with a six-game ban by Federation Internationale de Football Association, has apologized for an outburst directed at officials during the recent Confederations Cup match in Russia. Osorio is now with his team in San Diego as they prepare for the tournament.

FIFA, soccer's worldwide governing body, suspended Mexico national team coach Juan Carlos Osorio for six matches, gave him a warning and fined him almost $5,200 for his behavior during his team's 2-1 loss against Portugal in the third-place match at the FIFA Confederations Cup on July 2.

Should Mexico play fewer than six games at the Gold Cup, Osario's suspension will carry over into their next global matches.

"As a result, and given the gravity of the incident, Mr Osorio is to be suspended for six official matches and has also been sanctioned with a warning and a fine of CHF 5,000".

With Mexico's regular stars afforded a break after the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation, domestic-based players - aside from Erick Torres who plays in the United States - have been given a chance to shine in the country's bid for back-to-back Gold Cups.

Mexico - record seven-time champions - is missing many of their top players as they begin their Gold Cup campaign against El Salvador in San Diego on Sunday.
