Thierry Henry Reportedly Called Strasbourg Player’s Grandma ‘A Whore’

Thierry Henry Reportedly Called Strasbourg Player’s Grandma ‘A Whore’

Thierry Henry's managerial career at Monaco took an ugly turn after he reportedly called a Strasbourg player's grandma 'a whore.'

According to Goal's Robin Bairner, the 41-year-old Frenchman had a Saturday night to forget.

Along with the insult to Kenny Lala's grandma, the Arsenal legend watched his side be on the receiving end of a 5-1 thrashing from Strasbourg.

Ludovic Ajorque opened the scoring for Strasbourg and Adrien Thomasson doubled their lead.

Radamel Falcao pulled one back for Henry's men in the first half, but it proved to be in vain for 10-men Monaco.

That's right, Naldo had been sent off in the opening ten minutes of the match.

Ajorque completed his brace in the second half, with Ibrahima Sissoko, Stefan Mitrović and Youssouf Fofana all getting their names on the scoresheet.

Henry's night wasn't done there. The former Arsenal and Barcelona ace was furious after a malfunction with the VAR system.

"When I asked the fourth official why he wasn't reviewing [what led to the potential penalty], he told me the VAR was not working," he told L'Équipe.

"I would like to know why the VAR was not working and I hope you are going to ask why.

"We were 2-1 down at that moment and if we convert the penalty, it's 2-2. It would have been a game changer."

Strasbourg manager Thierry Laurey supported the Monaco boss' frustration with VAR.

"We were told after the break that the VAR would not be working for a while," he said.

"It has happened several times this season. I feel for Thierry Henry, but sometimes, technology does not work."

Monaco are 19th in Ligue 1 after 21 matches and are one point clear of bottom-place Guingamp.

Sure, Henry completed the signing of Cesc Fàbregas from Chelsea in the transfer window, but he also has his eyes set on securing the services of another Blues star.





Will Henry save Monaco from relegation?
