Toronto FC head coach Ryan Nelsen expects midfielder Jackson to face a suspension for an alleged elbow on D.C. United’s Davy Arnaud.

The Brazilian, who was signed from FC Dallas in December, appeared to catch Arnaud during Toronto’s 1-0 win at BMO Field on Sunday.

Nelsen admits he has sympathy for Jackson, but insists the 25 year-old should not have reacted to any provocation.

“Yeah, I think [the MLS Disciplinary Committee is] looking into it and we’ll probably hear back pretty soon,” he told mlssoccer.com. “But I would say, as a guess, he probably might get a suspension.

“I felt really bad for him, because he was getting pushed and shoved, but he shouldn’t have retaliated. But I can understand it.

"There’s a fire in Jackson that I really like and he brings a lot of energy to this club.”
