Report: NASL player allegedly shared strategy with opponents

Friday October 16th, 2015

The NASL’s San Antonio Scorpions have suspended midfielder Josue Soto for allegedly leaking team strategy to opponents, the San Antonio Express-News reports.

A release from the league announced that the league has begun investigating Soto’s “potential misconduct.” 

The Express-News reports Soto has shared information, including starting lineups, with former teammates. It remains unclear, according to the paper’s sources, if he had intent to sabotage his team’s chances at winning games.

Soto, 26, has had stints with Major League Soccer’s Houston Dynamo and Chivas USA. He has no goals or assists in 14 appearances for the Scorpions this season.
