Virgil van Dijk: Thierry Henry's response to Liverpool man calling him out after Villarreal win

Virgil van Dijk called out Thierry Henry for not replying to his text after Villarreal 2-3 Liverpool

Virgil van Dijk helped Liverpool to their third Champions League final in five years on Tuesday evening.

The Dutchman was in the starting lineup for Liverpool’s semi-final second leg clash against Villarreal.

Leading 2-0 from the first leg, the Reds struggled in the first-half as they their their advantage slip.

But Jurgen Klopp’s side came roaring back in the second half to win 3-2 on the evening and book their spot in Paris.

Van Dijk spoke to CBS Sports after the game and he felt the need to call Thierry Henry out.

Henry is a pundit for the American network and, after hearing that Henry was covering the game, Van Dijk called him out for not replying to his text.

He said: “I text him [Henry but he didn’t text me back! Titi: the legend” .

Henry heard Van Dijk’s complaints and he reacted in brilliant fashion.

It made for brilliant TV and you can watch the moment below…

“I actually don’t have his number anymore. I’ll go through someone else to get his number. I changed my number and when I put all my numbers on my new phone, his number wasn’t there anymore.”

Jamie Carragher then called Henry out for a lack of respect.

Carragher said: “Tonight has been a bit of a lack of respect from Thierry. To Van Dijk, to CBS for not wearing a tie… there’s a little bit of a theme there. He’s a top guy and he’s showing you respect. And you’re not getting back in touch?”

Henry then decided to roast Carragher.

The Frenchman hit back: “He didn’t text the right number. I’ll get him. You are just actually upset because he’s texting me!”

Barring injury, Van Dijk will no doubt be in the starting lineup for the final, which takes place in Paris on May 28.

Liverpool will play either Real or Manchester City, who contest their semi-final second leg on Wednesday evening.
