Chicago, Illinois: US coach Jurgen Klinsmann won't be on the sideline for his side's Gold Cup final against Panama on Sunday, CONCACAF ruled on Friday.

Former Germany star Klinsmann was sensationally sent off in the 87th minute of the USA's 3-1 semi-final triumph over Honduras on Wednesday for an angry outburst over a hard tackle on DaMarcus Beasley.

CONCACAF, football's governing body for North and Central America and the Caribbean, said Friday that it had reviewed the incident and suspended Klinsmann for one match.
