Henry suspended, fined for violent conduct in loss to SKC
NEW YORK – For the second consecutive season, Thierry Henry will miss time following an incident against Sporting KC.
On Friday, the MLS Disciplinary Committee announced it had suspended Henry for one game and fined the striker an undisclosed amount for violent conduct which endangered the safety of Sporting Kansas City forward Kei Kamara in the final seconds of Wednesday's game at Red Bull Arena. Henry was ejected from a match at Livestrong Sporting Park last October after running into the back of Kansas City midfield Roger Espinoza.
Henry will serve the suspension Saturday when New York faces the New England Revolution.
Fines collected will be donated to the charitable partners of MLS W.O.R.K.S. and the MLS Players Union.
