Orlando City SC star Nani has been suspended for two games and fined an undisclosed amount for unwanted physical contact with a referee, the MLS Disciplinary Committee said Friday.

The game was reviewed under MLS Disciplinary Committee Parameter # 3 where the referees saw an incident and did not issue a red card. According to parameter no.3, the MLS Disciplinary Commission either issues a one-time ban for incidents where PRO recognizes a VAR (Referee / Video Assistant Referee) error on the field and the commission is unanimous on the red card and a game. Disciplinary Committee issues a suspension of two or more games for incidents where the discipline warrants a suspension of at least two games.

The incident in question must, after the unanimous opinion of the committee, consist of all available evidence: a clear and unambiguous red card; and outrageous or repetitive behavior in nature and / or such that the MLS Disciplinary Committee must act to protect the safety of players or the integrity of the game; and / or clear and obvious simulation / embellishment.
