Club de Foot Montreal midfielder Matko Miljevic has had his contract terminated by MLS after reportedly punching a player in an amateur league game.
WHAT HAPPENED? On Monday MLS released a statement saying it had terminated Miljevic's contract for «engaging in conduct detrimental to the league.» The 22-year-old was investigated for violating his playing agreement.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Last week Canadian media reports claimed that Mijlevic had been playing in a Quebec indoor amateur soccer league under a fake name. He was allegedly banned for life from the league for punching another player in the face.
WHAT NEXT FOR MIJLEVIC?: Mijlevic — who began his career at Argentinos Juniors in Argentina and joined CF Montreal in 2021 — awaits the outcome of the investigation. In the meantime he could join a club outside MLS as a free agent.Read on goal.com
