French striker Thierry Henry of New York Red Bulls has been suspended by Major League Soccer for one match for a headbutting incident in the 93rd minute of a midweek match.
The 35-year-old will miss New York's game at New England on Sunday (AEST) and be fined an undisclosed sum for violent conduct over his striking of Sporting Kansas City forward Kei Kamara in a 2-0 Red Bulls' home loss.
During a late-match substitution, Henry ran at Kamara and slammed his head into that of Kamara, sending both men falling to the field and clutching their heads in pain.
In a New York loss at Kansas City last year, Henry received a red card after slamming into Roger Espinoza away from the ball.
Henry has scored 13 goals in 21 matches this season, sharing fourth in the MLS scoring race. In 2011, the French playmaker netted 14 goals in 26 appearances for New York.
Kansas City leads the MLS Eastern Conference at 16-7 with six drawn while Red Bulls are third in the East, five points back at 14-8-7.
Manchester City has set its sights on winning titles on both sides of the Atlantic after announcing its entrance into Major League Soccer.
