The New York Red Bulls almost snatched a win from Sporting Kansas City, only for 16-year-old Gianluca Busio to score his third goal in three games in the 88th minute to give the teams a point each at Children's Mercy Park on Sunday evening.

'It was a very, very, very hard ball that he gets in his face, ' Fontas said. Annoyed at either a refereeing decision or his teammates" failure to play the ball to him quickly, Alejandro Romero "Kaku' Gamarra can be seen smashing the ball into the crowd in anger in the footage below, striking a fan.

Kaku tweeted an apology after the game, writing: 'I want to take the time and apologize for my actions during tonight's match.

Luis Robles, the Red Bulls goalie, told reporters that he believed Kaku didn't mean to hit the fan. As a competitor, I was frustrated with myself and took out my frustrations in a way that is not acceptable.

Sporting KC teenager Busio rescued a point in a 1-1 draw away to FC Cincinnati last week and the 16-year-old sensation was at it again on Sunday.

The fan reportedly had to receive medical treatment after sustaining a bloody nose from the incident.

In a gesture of goodwill and perhaps feeling shamed by their team-mate's actions, many Red Bulls players approached the stands to check on the fan immediately after the final whistle.

"I know that [Kaku's] remorseful about it". "We all checked in with the guy". In 2017, Colorado Rapids goalkeeper Tim Howard was suspended for three games following an altercation with a fan.

A melee involving plenty of players from both sides soon followed the incident, for which Kaku was eventually shown a straight red card.

"The New York Red Bulls organization does not condone the type of behavior displayed near the end of Sunday night's match in Kansas City", the Red Bulls said in a statement Monday.
