Major League Soccer indefinitely suspended Sporting Kansas City midfielder Felipe Hernandez for a second time due to gambling allegations, officials announced Friday.

MLS issued a brief statement without details on the potential wrongdoing under investigation.

“Major League Soccer has placed Sporting Kansas City midfielder Felipe Hernandez on administrative leave following a report that the player violated the league’s gambling policies, as well as the terms of his January 2022 reinstatement,” the statement read.

The team’s next game is Saturday night at the Los Angeles Galaxy.

Sporting Kansas City’s chief communications officer, Rob Thomson, declined to comment. The team’s communications staff shared the league’s announcement.

Hernandez, 26, was previously suspended near the end of the 2021 season before his reinstatement for the 2022 campaign.
