CINCINNATI -- The United Soccer League has suspended FC Cincinnati's Djiby Fall six games for "major game misconduct" during last week's match against Louisville City FC.

The league also imposed an undisclosed fine.

Fall's suspension consists of a one-game suspension and fine for the red card for serious foul play, and an additional five-game suspension and fine.

The suspension runs through June 3, pending any schedule changes.

During the 87th minute of the game against Louisville, Fall was issued a red card for a cleats-up tackle. After the play, he and another player made contact in an apparent shouting match, but it is unknown what was said.

Louisville coach James O’Connor told the Louisville Courier-Journal after the game that during the fray, Fall bit McCabe’s cheek.
