Share post:

Major League Soccer terminated the contract of CF Montreal midfielder Matko Miljevic on Monday.

The 22-year-old American used an alias to compete in a Quebec amateur league and punched an opponent there in the face, according to multiple reports.

MLS said in a brief release that Miljevic “engaged in conduct detrimental to the league and (violated) his standard player agreement.”

Miljevic made his MLS debut with Montreal in 2021 and appeared in 35 league matches (eight starts), contributing two goals and two assists.

He made eight appearances this season as a substitute, playing just 124 minutes.

Montreal announced in mid-February that Miljevic would be sidelined 8-12 weeks following surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee.
