Atlanta United’s Andrew Carleton was suspended from Saturday’s MLS Cup victory against Portland because he violated a club policy.
The club on Sunday declined to provide more details.
The 18-year-old Powder Spring native trained with the team throughout the week, but was noticeably absent from the podium and locker room following the 2-0 win.
Carleton was the team’s first Homegrown signing. He made seven appearances including two starts this season, notching one assist.
