Thierry Henry Fined $2,000 By MLS For Kick

NEW YORK (AP) — Thierry Henry has been fined $2,000 by Major League Soccer for a celebratory kick last week that injured Dallas goalkeeper Kevin Hartman.

Following a goal by Red Bulls teammate Mehdi Ballouchy in Thursday’s 2-2 draw, Henry kicked the ball toward the net. The ball struck Hartman on the right knee, injuring his medial collateral ligament.

MLS’s disciplinary committee said Monday the actions by the former Arsenal captain were unsporting. Henry apologized to Hartman and described it as “one of those stupid things.”
