The Aston Villa midfielder has claimed that Henry encouraged him to consider a move to the Red Bulls.
Henry told the Daily Star: “I don’t know why he said that. Robert likes to talk, maybe because they haven’t offered him another contract at Villa?
“But I did not speak to him about coming. I called him and said, ‘Why did you have to mention my name?’ I think he’s 37 soon.
“I think he should talk as a grown man. I played with Robert for a very long time. He likes to talk on the field with the ball, sometimes without the ball outside of the field.
“You should ask him why he said that as I have no idea.”
