The majority of football fans – not to say all of them – do not know the name of the English player Matthew Le Tissier, who spent most of his football career with Southampton but won the title of “greatest player in the Premier League”, according to the “Euro Sport” sports network.
Le Tissier scored 161 goals in 443 games over the past 16 years, playing for the “Saints”.
The player, who wore his country’s national team shirt only eight times, beat France’s Terry Henry in the final vote by 60% for the 51-year-old Englishman, compared to 40% for the former star Arsenal and Barcelona.
Le Tissier, during his final run to the vote, surpassed Cristiano Ronaldo, Rio Ferdinand, Stephen Gerrard, and Alan Shearer.
Henry, however, defeated Yaya Toure, Sergio Aguero, Paul Scholes, and Ryan Giggs before being defeated in the final by the submerged player.
Even “Le Tissier” – who is currently a sports programmer – did not believe that he won this moral award. He said, “I did not know that my family was so big, if you asked me about my opinion, I would choose Henry, but if we take everything into consideration, not just the titles Crowned by the players and clubs that they played for and focused on the natural ingredients, I may understand why I won this vote.”
