Plenty of players have won more trophies than Matt Le Tissier throughout their careers – but only one man will forever be known as ‘Le God’ at Southampton.
Le Tissier was the prime example of a one-club man, shunning interest from the likes of Tottenham and Chelsea to stay loyal to Southampton, for who he made 540 appearances and scored 209 goals in a 17-year career.
One of the most mercurial talents to grace English football, the attacker was one of the game’s great entertainers and had a taste for scoring f*cking ludicrously good goals.
Despite his abundance of natural talent, a focus on what he couldn’t do meant Le Tissier won a criminally low tally of just eight caps for England.
But we’re only interested in what made Le Tissier so exhilarating to watch, which the likes of Xavi explain pretty well.
Hazard is a joy to watch when this confident.
Son Heung-min is going to be jealous.
Wenger says the perception of club has suffered.
Jadon Sancho had a day to remember.
Just one player remains.

Former Liverpool defender John…
