The two veterans enjoyed their evening and were happy to pose for photographs, according to the restaurant's owner Giuseppe Manganaro.

"They came in on Monday evening with the Indonesia Youth Team as they were playing a friendly match the next day with Brighton Youth Team," he said.

"They were very friendly with my staff and enjoyed their evening so we took some pictures together."

Dennis Wise is best known for making more than 300 appearances over 11 years at Chelsea, becoming their most successful captain until John Terry led the team to domestic and European success.
