MLS star Kaku kicks ball into stands, hitting fan

The sequence occurred in the 93rd minute of the Red Bulls' 2-2 draw Sunday at Children's Mercy Park in Kansas City.

While New York City FC's goalkeeper was responsible for an own goal for the ages away at Minnesota on Saturday, New York's other side - the Red Bulls - had one of their own men sent off in freakish circumstances in the final seconds of their game against Sporting Kansas City on Sunday.

Sporting Kansas City was on the attack before being foiled by the Red Bulls defense.

When it looked like RBNY might come away with the three points, Zusi was able to collect a punch from Robles and fire the ball back into the box, which Busio was able to turn home for the equalizer.

Kaku was dismissed with a straight red card, and after a scuffle near the sideline, Red Bulls goalkeeper Luis Robles and Sporting KC forward Krisztian Nemeth were both issued yellow cards.

Kaku has been at odds with the Red Bulls this season after expressing a desire to leave the team in January, when he was linked with a move to Club America, one of the largest clubs in Mexico.

After the final whistle blew, other members of the Red Bulls team went over to the fan to apologize for their teammate's meltdown. As a competitor, I was frustrated with myself and took out my frustrations in a way that is not acceptable.

"I know that [Kaku's] remorseful about it". We hold everyone in our organization to a high standard of conduct.

Busio - a second-half substitute - managed to stick home a chance at the far post following a recycled corner kick to quash the Red Bulls' hopes of a comeback win in a wild affair. The Argentine goes by the full name Alejandro Sebastián Romero Gamarra and began his senior career in 2013 with Huracan in Argentina.
