Soccer Saturday legend Jeff Stelling rinses Paul Merson after ex-Arsenal star brings barbecue lentil crisps to studio

ARSENAL legend Paul Merson was left in stitches after being mercilessly mocked about his 'unmanly' snack choice live on telly!

Soccer Saturday host Jeff Stelling held up Merson's bag of lentil crisps to the camera for viewers at home to see, and then asked him, 'What kind of man are you these days?'

The hilarious exchange was typical of the banter which has made the weekly football scorers round-up service so popular since its launch in 1992.

Stelling help up the packet of Proper Chips to the camera, and joked: "You may have briefly heard some interference as we were going to the commercial break and I was finishing with the scores... and this is the reason.

"They were in Paul Merson's hands at the time - he was eating his crisps.

"And do you know what the worst thing about it is? Look, they are BBQ lentil!

"What happened to salt and vinegar for goodness sake!

"What kind of man are you these days?"


The impromptu exchange underlines how much Stelling will be missed when he leaves Soccer Saturday at the end of the season.

The 66-year-old revealed last month that he is calling time on his Sky Sports career after 30 years with the broadcaster.

He announced during a show: "I’m not intending to retire, that’s up to people out there.

"But it’s time to let someone else have a go at what is the best job in the world."
