Rant: Henry swore at an Arsenal fan

Thierry Henry has issued an apology to Arsenal fans for his x-rated outburst at one of the club's fans.

The French forward, 34, admitted to The Sun that he lost his temper after the Gunners' unexpected 3-2 defeat at the hands of Swansea.

One fan had shouted abuse at the players as they applauded the travelling support, and Henry admitted to losing his cool.

Henry said: 'I was really shocked and disappointed on Sunday – and not just at the result.

'After the final whistle of a very tricky game, I insisted the whole team go and applaud the Arsenal supporters.

'When I arrived in front of our own fans, I couldn't understand the abuse the team were getting from one of them.

'I wanted to tell the fan in question that we need their support not abuse. The sentiment was right but in hindsight could have been better expressed.

'So I would like to first and foremost apologise for using inappropriate language to that particular 'supporter'.

'I didn't intend to be malicious or threatening and am aware that it could have been said in a calmer manner.

'We have had great moments at this club but we are all in this together. We need your support in the good times but more importantly the bad.

'Let's get behind the team against Manchester United on Sunday and try to get three points to get the season back on track.'
