Wanyama’s tweet in which he declared his love for spaghetti is still beloved nine years later
The former Southampton ace wrote on Twitter in 2012: “I had spaghetti and it was very nice I enjoyed it.”
In the years since Wanyama has regularly been reminded of the post – with Spurs even making reference to it when they signed him in 2016.
Tottenham posted an image of the Kenyan holding spaghetti with the caption: “We signed Victor Wanyama and he was very nice we enjoyed it.”
Some Montreal fans have now successfully grabbed the 30-year-old’s eye after their 2-1 loss to New England on Sunday night.
Two supporters held a banner aloft at the game reading: “Will trade spaghetti for kit.”
And their wish came true after the match as Wanyama did indeed exchange his jersey for a packet of the Italian pasta.
Montreal posted the video on social media and fans went wild, as one replied: “This is great lmao.”
Another added: “This. is. legendary.”

A third added: “Bro this is so sweet. Victor what a lad.”
The official MLS Twitter account even responded as they said: “Looks like a fair trade.”
While Wanyama then got in on the act by sharing the video as well, simply posting a spaghetti emoji.
