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.
