Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk has called out Arsenal legend Thierry Henry for not texting him back.
Van Dijk had a pop at Henry after helping the Reds survive a scare against Villarreal in the Champions League semi-final. Jurgen Klopp's side fought back from 2-0 down to win 3-2 on the night and 5-2 on aggregate to book their place in the final later this month.
Afterwards, the Dutch defender spoke to CBS and asked who was in the studio for the American broadcaster. The interviewer told Van Dijk that Micah Richards and Jamie Carragher were both working as pundits on the game, along with French legend Henry.
That prompted a shock admission from Van Dijk, who said: "TT? I text him but he didn't text me back. TT, the legend." CBS then threw back to the studio to get a response from Henry.
"I actually don't have his number anymore," Henry revealed before imploring the Liverpool star to send him a message. "So text me. I'll go through someone else to get his number. I don't have his number anymore."

CBS Host Kate Abdo then suggested it was difficult for people to get in touch with Henry. "No, no, no, not at all," came the reply from the 1998 World Cup winner.
"I changed my number at the same time, and when I put all my numbers on my new phone his new number wasn't there," he added.
Carragher jokily laid into Henry, accusing him of a lack of respect, saying: "To be fair, tonight there has been a bit of a lack of respect from Thierry. To Virgil van Dijk, to CBS for not wearing a tie. There's a little bit of a theme there. He's a top guy, he's shown you that respect, and you're not getting back in touch."
Henry hit back: "He didn't text the right number. I will get him," before turning to Carragher and joking: "You're actually upset because he's texting me."
