Houston Dynamo boss Dom Kinnear and DC United caretaker Ben Olsen were both ejected from the technical area during the MLS clash involving their clubs on the weekend.

The two coaches both left their own areas to shake hands following a poor challenge by a DC player on one of Houston’s but referee Alex Prus decided to eject them despite them showing sportsmanship.

“I kind of gave him a heads up, apologizing for the tackle,” said Olsen. “It was a bad tackle, and we went to shake hands because he yelled. I went over to shake his hand, he came over towards me, to shake hands, so I got thrown out. That’s what happens when you shake hands.”

For the record, Houston won the clash at the RFK Stadium 3-1 despite going a goal down in the 29th minute.
