The former France striker didn't shy away from criticism

Thierry Henry has expressed his disappointment with his France U-21 squad following a humiliating 3-0 defeat to South Korea on Monday.

The former Arsenal and Barcelona starlet was livid with his players’ display as they recorded back-to-back losses.

“The result is horrible,” Henry said. “I told the guys that we were taught a lesson in fighting spirit against Austria, and here we have received a lesson in realism.”

Henry further elaborated that he plans to make significant changes if things don’t change rapidly. The 46-year-old stated that he would rely on more senior players and those, who underperformed may wait a long time before getting their next chance.

“There will be the (players born in) 2001 (in March’s international break). We’ll certainly have a different XI, just like we’ll have a different XI for the Olympic Games,” Henry confirmed.

“We have to prepare and we’ll see who comes back.”
