Ex-Everton star Tim Howard has found himself on the wrong end of a three game ban after the Colorado Rapids ‘keeper apparently called an opposition fan a “motherf*****”.
The incident happened during Colorado’s clash with Sportin Kansas City last week at the Children’s Mercy Park.
The 38-year-old American confronted fans during his side’s 3-1 defeat, with the Kansas support shouting at him to “go back to Colorado” with the incensed Howard appearing to drop the m/f bomb.

To be fair, football fans, as we all know, can be right lame-ass, mother-friggin’ douchebags.
After the game, poor old Tim then got himself involved in a couple of altercations with Kansas players in a bad night for the star.
Howard’s club have accepted the ban, saying that the actions of the ‘keeper “do not represent the Colorado Rapids Soccer Club or Tim’s character and beliefs, on and off the pitch”.
The statement from the club also said:
Tim Howard made a regrettable mistake for which he is being disciplined by MLS. While this is out of character for Tim, we do not condone these actions.
Everyone at the Colorado Rapids Soccer Club stands behind Tim and we look forward to welcoming him back to the pitch in the near future.
What a naughty young (ish) man he is!
