Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Desaillly is one legend who has always been in the news for good reasons.
He has always kept his private life secret and that has helped him mainatin his long-lasting marriage.
The one-time world cup winner won the hearts of many with his skills during his active days.
But one thing Desailly's loyal fans have found it difficult to know is information about his beautiful wife.
The former Chelsea and AC Milan star man has been married for the past 25 years.
Desailly is married to Virginie and their marriage has been blessed with four children - one girl and three strong boys.
Desailly is having the best time with his family after hanging his boots in 2006.
Born Odenkey Abbey in 1968, Desailly attained 51 in September 2019.
As the name suggests, he was born to a Ga mother but was adopted and renamed Desailly after his mother got married to the head of the French consulate at the time.
Desailly and his family (white father) left Ghana for France in 1972 when he was less than four years old.
