Both coaches ejected in Montreal win over D.C. United

Marco Schallibaum,

Major League Soccer does not keep records for sideline incidents. But if they did, there is no question Montreal’s Marco Schallibaum would be stampeding his way to career leadership.

When you say “That game where Schallibaum got ejected,” you must be very, very specific.

Things keep happening for Schallibaum, some of it connected to the absurd lack of room along the sideline at cozy Stade Saputo in Montreal, which puts him within troubling and troublesome proximity of his opposition counterpart. (The cameras and microphones caught D.C. United manager Ben Olsen humorously pointing out Saturday the lack of room for coaches to roam over there.)

Olsen surely won’t see any humor in getting ejected, along with Schallibaum in Montreal’s 2-1 victory.

So, if you’re counting, that makes three MLS managers tossed from matches Saturday.

It is getting hot in the playoff-race kitchen, isn’t it?

Here is some of the action from Stade Saputo on Saturday – some on the field, some on the sidelines.

    You have to be very specific when talking about any game a Montreal L’impact coach has been expelled. This has been the m.o. in Montreal since the early 90′s.

    The coach can’t do to much once the game begins. But when something happens and the players are getting pushed around he has to speak up. Mr. Schallibaum is doing a great job.
