Colorado Rapids midfielder Brian Mullan has been hit with a 10-match ban following his horror tackle against Seattle Sounders last Friday.

The 33-year old was shown a straight red card for his challenge that broke the leg of Sounders winger Steve Zakuani, ruling him out for the rest of the season.

The MLS Disciplinary Committee deemed the tackle to be reckless and decided to impose a 10-game suspension and fined a total of $5,000, including the automatic one-game suspension and $250 fine for receiving a red card.
