Brian Mullan's Harsh Tackle on Steve Zakuani

Update: Brian Mullan has been suspended for a total of 10 games and fined $5,000 for the tackle on Steve Zakuani.

Harsh tackle is an understatement, just a horrible challenge by Mullan that broke both Zakuani's tibia and fibula. Mullan lost the ball and then goes in hard with his cleats up. Straight red card for Mullan.


Now, the question is, how long should Mullan be suspended for the tackle? Many have called for a Mullan suspension as long as Zakuani is out of the game, which would be at least the rest of the season. Others have set 10 games at a minium.

Really though, it's just a sad, sad day for Zakuani, the Seattle Sounders, and the MLS, as Zakuani is one of the league's most exciting young players. In truth, he's destined for bigger leagues, but this setback will delay his moving on to Europe for some time.

This is what Mullan had to say about the tackle and breaking Zakuani's leg. He obviously appears shaken and sad, with tears in his eyes, but to say that he would do the same type of tackle again is just not right.
