The talkSPORT caller admits he left his wife at dinner while on vacation to chat football with Arsenal legend Patrick Vieira and ex-Chelsea star Marcel Desailly


It’s not every day that you meet your heroes.

But for talkSPORT caller Steven he certainly made sure to grab the chance to chat with former Arsenal star Patrick Vieira and ex-Chelsea man Marcel Desailly by the scruff of the neck – when he is on vacation with his wife!

Paul Hawksbee and Charlie Baker had asked callers to contact them to tell their stories of dining out with footballers.

And Steven told the hilarious story of when he left with his wife Deborah for Rome around 15 years ago.

“We were sitting outside, having a few drinks and waiting for our food to arrive, and we walked past Patrick Vieira with Marcel Desailly and their wives,” he explained in Hawksbee and Baker on Tuesday.

“He is [Vieira] looked at me, I looked at him, he doesn’t know who I am, I said ‘Hi Patrick, how are you?’, he said ‘Hi’, and I just walked past and I was entered the restaurant.

“I then said to my wife ‘I have to go to the bathroom’, but I walked in and sat down with them. [Vieira and Desailly] for about an hour.”

Hawksbee and Baker snapped at Steven’s story, joking that it must have been very romantic for his wife who he had left on her own.

“What is madam doing? All she does is push the food onto her plate! Hawksbee joked.

“I don’t know what she was doing!” Steven answered.

The talkSPORT hosts snapped again.

“We had a nice romantic trip to Italy and he left for an hour with Patrick Vieira and Marcel Desailly!” Hawksbee laughed as he tried to stay the course.

As if disappearing for an hour wasn’t hilarious enough, Steven didn’t even tell his wife the truth when he got back, claiming he’d be in the bathroom all the time.

“We were talking about everything about football obviously, I annoyed their wives to tears, I came back and she [my wife] said to me ‘where have you been?’

“I said ‘I just went to the bathroom!'”

And they say romance is dead!
