‘He never texted me back’ – Virgil van Dijk jokes Thierry Henry IGNORED his messages in post-Villarreal win interview

VIRGIL VAN DIJK revealed he was ghosted by Thierry Henry after failing to hear back from the Arsenal legend.

The Liverpool star, 30, gave an interview to US broadcaster CBS after the Reds qualified for the Champions League final and he had a wry smile on his face when he learned Henry was in the studio.

The Dutchman then told CBS Sports: "I text him but he didn't text me back. You tell him now, TT the legend."

Presenter Kate Abdo asked Henry why failed to respond to the centre-back, and he replied: "I actually don't have his number anymore.

"So text me, I'll go through someone else to get his number. I changed my number and when I put all the numbers on my new phone his was not there anymore."

Jamie Carragher then intervened and jokingly accused Henry of disrespecting Van Dijk.

So Henry hit back saying: "He didn't text the right number. I'll get him.

"You're actually upset because he's texting me…it's alright!"

That sparked laughter amongst the pundits with Carragher suggesting that the "legend" van Dijk referred to may have been him.

The former Liverpool defender also had Henry and Micah Richards in stitches at half-time with his reaction to Villarreal's lead over the Reds.

Carragher got up from his seat and was pacing back and forth with an anxious smile on his face, which Henry and Richards found hilarious.
