Arena was placed on leave Tuesday as the league launched an investigation into allegedly “insensitive and inappropriate language,” a statement said Twitter.

Following the news, Kyle claimed that the arena is “under investigation for a racial slur he used against someone at the club.”

However, she quickly retracted her claim.

In a post on Twitter, Kyle wrote: “On yesterday’s episode of The Football Show on Sirius

“The league’s investigation – of which I have no knowledge or first-hand information – relates to allegations that the manager made insensitive remarks.”

“I had no basis to say what I said on the show. I understand that words matter and I apologize for my actions.”

“I spoke carelessly and should have been more careful with my words.”

A former University of Saskatchewan star, Kyle played professionally in Canada, Sweden and the United States for ten years

She also earned 101 caps for Canada, scoring six goals, and played at two Women’s World Cups and at the 2012 London Olympics, where she won a bronze medal.

Kyle retired from football in 2017 and subsequently entered the broadcasting world at TSN.

Ahead of this season, Apple TV announced that she would be joining the MLS Season Pass broadcast team as a studio presenter.

She has been married to former MLS midfielder Harrison Heath since 2017, with whom she has two children, Hayden and Hendrix.

Heath’s father is the current head coach of MLS team Minnesota United FC.
