Seattle Sounders striker Clint Dempsey has received a two-match ban.

Dempsey was suspended for two games by MLS on Friday for violent conduct toward Toronto FC defender Mark Bloom in last week's match.

USA coach Jurgen Klinsmann is upset about Dempsey's ban.

"A two-game suspension for that moment seems very harsh, and it comes at a very bad time for us as it throws him out of a rhythm before the game against Mexico," he said.
