French star Thierry Henry has apologized for an incident during a play stoppage in an Major League Soccer game that injured the goalkeeper for FC Dallas.

New York Red Bulls player Henry apologized for injuring Kevin Hartman’s knee by taking an extra kick at the ball in the Dallas’ goal area during the Red Bulls 2-2 tie on Thursday.

Hartman suffered a sprained medial collateral ligament on the play and is expected to miss at least the next Dallas game, the Dallas Morning News reported on Friday.

FC Dallas coach Schellas Hyndman said Thursday he would ask MLS league officials to investigate the play.

“I went to apologize because I didn’t mean to hurt him,” Henry said. “A pure accident. I told him I was sorry. He accepted it. It was one of those stupid things.”

Henry ran into the Dallas’ keepers goal area “to smash the ball back into the net like I do sometimes”. Henry didn’t see Hartman reaching for the ball at the same time and Hartman got the worst of the collision. Henry’s hard kick caught Hartman’s foot, twisting the knee.

Henry was not penalized by the referee who had already given him one yellow card earlier in the game.
