EX-CHELSEA star Matt Miazga has been punished for storming into the referee’s dressing room.
The FC Cincinnati defender has been slapped with a three-match ban and an undisclosed fine.
Miazga received a second booking during a penalty shootout against his former club New York Red Bulls for goading opposition fans after converting his spot-kick.
Cincinnati won 8-7 on penalties – but the victory and spot in MLS Eastern Conference semi-finals were not enough to calm the hothead down.
After the match finished, Miazga charged into the officials area and had to be removed by security.
A statement from the PSRA, who look after referees in the United States, said that he “acted in an aggressive and hostile manner”.
Having picked up a three-game ban, Miazga will now be unavailable for the Eastern Conference final against Columbus Crew.
He will also be suspended for the MLS Cup final against either Los Angeles FC or Houston Dynamo should Cincinnati win their match.
Miazga was on the books of Chelsea from 2016 to 2022.
He played just twice for the Blues and was loaned out to Vitesse, Nantes, Reading, Anderlecht and Alaves during his six-year stay.

The 28-year-old is now back in his homeland of America and has impressed this season, being named MLS Defender of the Year.
Miazga will also be forced to undergo an assessment as part of the league’s Substance Abuse and Behavioural Health initiative.
