Arsenal and France legend, Thierry Henry who is currently the coach of French club, Monaco has been forced to apologise after calling a player’s grandmother a ‘LovePeddler’ during his team’s 5-1 defeat by Strasbourg on Saturday.
The former striker was caught on camera clashing with Kenny Lala from the touchline as the defender took a throw-in near the dugouts just before half-time.
Henry who took his first managerial job with the Ligue 1 side in October, felt the Strasbourg star was wasting time with his side 2-1 up, and then shouted: ‘It’s the 43rd minute, your grandmother’s LovePeddler.’
Speaking during his press conference on Sunday, the 41-year-old apologised for his comments.
‘It’s an expression of the street, unfortunately,’ he said.
‘I regret my comments from the bench. It was a human reaction, I’m still human. I regret it.
‘Sometimes I do it in English. Maybe in English, it wouldn’t have been as noticeable. No, I’m joking. I should not do it.’
