Emery - I was a huge fan of Le Tissier

There are plenty of football fans - not just Southampton fans - who would argue that Matthew Le Tissier should have played more than eight times for England.

Le Tissier was one of the most technically-gifted players in the top flight, and a regular gatecrasher of Goal of the Month competitions in his Saints heyday.

And it turns out the first midfielder to score 100 goals in the Premier League was admired from afar by one of the division’s most recent additions - our own Unai Emery.

“He’s one player who I would watch when I was watching the Premier League in Spain,” said the head coach.

“He was one player I would watch a lot of movies of. He was very technical, a quality player with the ball and was amazing for the spectacle.

“My memory of him is that he was a very, very special player.”
