Thierry Henry admits he regrets calling Strasbourg player Kenny Lala’s grandmother a “whore.”

The Monaco manager was frustrated during the 5-1 loss in Ligue 1, claiming Strasbourg were timewasting.

The former Arsenal and Barcelona star snapped before half-time at Lala as he was about to take a throw-in.

Henry is believed to have said:

“It’s the 43rd minute, your grandmother’s whore.”

The 41-year-old then turned to an official and added:

“He’s got to stop now, that’s enough.”

Henry quickly backtracked after the match, apologising for his outburst.

“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.”
