League Commissioner Don Garber also ordered Clark to attend diversity and sensitivity training, stating, “Major League Soccer will not tolerate this type of behavior from its players or staff at any time, under any circumstances,” while also acknowledging that Clark had expressed “sincere remorse” for his actions. In response to the league’s disciplinary action, Clark declared, “I am sorry about what happened during the Seattle match. I have personally apologized to the ball boy, and I want to take this chance to say I’m sorry to everyone that I’ve offended… what I said does not properly represent who I am or what I believe. I made a mistake that I truly regret. I accept the punishment that has been handed down by MLS.”
