Atlanta United’s Carleton suspended for MLS Cup

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.
