Le Tissier enjoys Southampton’s throwback tweet

Matt Le Tissier is regarded as a Southampton legend due to his goals and long-standing loyalty.

The retired footballer, who was nicknamed ‘Le God’ by the Saints following, spent 16 years at St Mary’s.

During that time, Le Tissier became the first midfielder to score 100 goals in the Premier League, and by the time he left the club in 2002, the Englishman was the second-highest ever scorer for Southampton.

The attack-minded player was known for his precision when it came to penalties having converted 47 of his 48 attempts from the spot.

Nowadays, Le Tissier spends time covering matches for Sky Sports’ Soccer Saturday, and is a regular fixture on the panel.

The 48-year-old also uses Twitter every now and again to interact with fans, and he woke up on Friday morning to a wonderful reminder of his past glory.

Southampton chose one of Le Tissier’s goals for a throwback piece, and the strike shown was from a match against Coventry City in 1996.

It is safe to say that Le Tissier enjoyed watching that back.
