Virgil van Dijk hilariously called Thierry Henry for ignoring his messages, before Henry had a chance to reply live.
No one in the Reds defense covered themselves in glory in the first half of the match as the Spanish side entered the interval 2-0 and looked like they could pull a huge flip.
It didn’t have to be at the end and full time Van Dijk had some words for an expert, but it had nothing to do with Owen’s outrageous statement, instead he was just thinking about another former striker.
Interviewed by the American broadcaster CBS, the Dutch defender asked who was in the studio for them, eagerly waiting for the interviewer to pronounce Henry’s name.
When it was said, Van Dijk revealed the unanswered message he had sent, saying, “I sent him a message [Henry] but he didn’t answer me! Titi: the legend “, telling the interviewer to get the message across.
Luckily CBS did just that, with Kate Abdo then moving on to the Arsenal legend to answer for herself, and the whole thing made for excellent viewing.
“Actually I don’t have his number anymore,” said the Frenchman in his defense, “I’ll go to someone else to get his number.
“I changed my number and when I put all my numbers on my new phone, his number was gone.”
The ‘new most public telephone, who is this?’ of all time was interrupted by Jamie Carragher, who called his colleague expert out of a “disrespect”.
“Tonight there was a little bit of disrespect from Thierry. To Van Dijk, to CBS for not wearing the tie … there’s a bit of a theme there,” said the legend. of Liverpool.
“He’s a great guy and he’s showing you respect. And won’t you get back in touch?”
Henry then responded brilliantly, saying, “He didn’t text the right number. I’ll get him. You’re just mad because he’s texting me.”
Carragher, along with all Liverpool fans, would certainly have experienced all the excitement on Tuesday night, especially when Villarreal tied in the half-time draw.
They were saved by the introduction of Luis Diaz and the terrible performance of goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli of Villarreal, and allowed the former Reds defender to overtake his other expert sparring partner Gary Neville.
The Manchester United legend was definitely in his element when the Yellow Submarine went 2-0, via Francis Coquelin, taking to Twitter to post pictures of himself enjoying the wine.
