Dempsey suspended for violent conduct

MLS • Clint Dempsey says he was disappointed by the two-game suspension issued by Major League Soccer just before a major international appearance for the U.S. national team against Mexico. Dempsey spoke for the first time about his suspension after the Seattle Sounders practiced Thursday. He said he doesn’t agree with the decision but that there isn’t any point in worrying about it. Dempsey was suspended for violent conduct toward Toronto FC defender Mark Bloom in a March 15 match.

• L.A. Galaxy defender James Riley will be out for at least six months after having surgery on his left knee. Riley’s lateral meniscus was injured in the Galaxy’s game Saturday at RSL.
