At the time, the two were in action when Fulham faced Manchester City.

After battling for a header, Richards and Dempsey went head-to-head as they exchanged angry words.

Kasper Schmeichel eventually separated them and both were banned because of the incident.

While regular expert Thierry Henry followed AC Milan against Paris Saint-Germain in Italy, Dempsey joined regular players Richards, Jamie Carragher and host Kate Abdo.

Carragher cheekily made a point of sitting between Richards and Dempsey, referencing their point of contention in 2007.

Both men laughed at the images of the flair-up before Carra suggested they stand up and reenact the incident.

Dempsey jokingly shouted, “I told him to increase his weight!”

Then Richards shouted: “I thought, ‘You don’t want this, you don’t want this’!”

Carragher then challenged them to compete against each other again to fully recreate the moment.


The duo grinned as they finally pulled away – with Dempsey arguing over who won the first header.

Former US star Dempsey then added: “His teammate had to save him!”

In an American accent, Richards joked: “Basically he says, ‘You don’t know where I come from, dog’.”

With testosterone flying around the studio at this point, Dempsey spread his arms and proudly said, “I’m from the oldest city in Texas, Nacogdoches.”

Carragher then asked Richards what he said, causing the others to get excited when he replied meekly: “I said I was from Chapeltown.”

Dempsey had already stunned his fellow panelists with a confidential confession at the beginning of the show.

Abdo introduced him at the start of the show and asked, “What happened in your life?”

Dempsey, 40, replied candidly: “Well, I’ve had enough since the last time I was there. No more children.”

His answer naturally sent Carragher and Richards into hysterics.

The exchange put the gang in distress
