Monaco coach Henry 'regrets' tirade against Strasbourg wing-back Lala

AS Monaco coach Thierry Henry lost his rag during defeat to Strasbourg.

His struggling Monaco side's 5-1 home defeat against Strasbourg on Saturday had Henry fuming.

The former Arsenal man was seen insulting an opposing player and lashing out at a malfunction of the Video Assistant Refereeing (VAR) system, reports the Mirror.

Television footage showed the former France international making an abusive remark to Strasbourg wing-back Kenny Lala after claiming he was time wasting during the demolition.

After telling Lala “it's the 43rd minute" and adding “oh, come on, stop now, it's enough", Henry appeared to use a French insult which translates as “grandson of a b***h" or “your grandmother's a w***e".

"I regret my comments. It was a human reaction. I regret it," Henry told a news conference on Sunday.
