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.
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.
It was Carragher who had the last laugh however as Jurgen Klopp’s side overcame the 2-0 deficit to win 3-2 on the night and progress through to the final.
They will face Real Madrid or Manchester City with the two European giants set to face off in this evening’s second leg at the Bernabeu.
