New York - 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 team-mate 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 apologised to Hartman and described it as "one of those stupid things."

    Soccer is not a real sport. This article should really be under 'entertainment' rather than 'Sport'. ;)

    Well done Johan because you're the expert. I know of 3 different individuals that have suffered knee ligament damage from the same sort of "challengers".
