Some players will remain heroes forever at clubs, and for Southampton, that name is Matt Le Tissier.
— Robbie (@EditSouthampton) October 3, 2019
The former Saints striker is one of the most iconic and prolific attackers in the Premier League era of English football, with figures from the Premier League’s official website showing that Le Tissier scored 100 goals and registered 64 assists in 270 appearances for Southampton.
And popular Twitter account Edit Southampton honoured ‘Le God’s’ time on the south coast with a video published on YouTube of Le Tissier’s best goals for the club, which was met with great reception on social media from Saints supporters, who had fond memories of their former star.
This is what some Southampton fans had to say about the video on Le Tissier…
Just simply the best player ever to play for us , where is his statue ??

Pure genius just imagine how much he’d be worth now !! Where’s the last ever goal at the Dell though?? Or did I miss it?

It is an understatement to say that Le Tissier is a god on the south coast…
Was a Saints fan way before @mattletiss7 joined us.
Feel extremely proud to have watched this genius week in, week out.

Le Tissier will be hoping Southampton will be able to bag some much-needed goals this weekend against Chelsea, who visit St. Mary’s this weekend.
