The 33-year-old let his frustrations get the better of him in the game against DC United, though, as he was shown a red seven minutes before the end of last night’s game.

DC United were winning 1-0 and Inter Miami were already down to ten when Shawcross was given his marching orders.

He tried to carry the ball forward down the right-wing, but was tackled by substitute Joseph Mora.

The defender then wrapped his arm around the DC United player’s neck and pulled him to the ground.

Shawcross tried to walk away, but an angry reaction from the players and crowd saw the referee produce a red card.

It has been tough for the new franchise in their first full Major League Soccer season with just two wins from their first nine games.

Things have not been easy for manager Phil Neville, who decided to leave Gonzalo Higuain out of his squad as he works on his fitness.

The former Real Madrid striker admitted this week that he found the MLS harder than he thought it would be.

Speaking on Christian Vieri’s Twitch channel Bobo TV, the Argentine forward said of joining MLS from Italian giant Juventus: “I thought I would come here and play with a cigarette in my mouth and, instead, it is difficult. 

“It is a tough league. I learned that it is similar to Italian football. In Spain and England it is easier to do well, while in Italy, if you do not know the league, you suffer.”
