Matt Le Tissier
Matt Le Tissier is a Guernsey-born English former professional footballer and football television presenter. He works as a football pundit for Sky Sports and is the honorary president of Guernsey F.C..
He spent his entire professional club career with Southampton and won eight caps for the England national football team before turning to non-League football in 2002. He remained at Southampton for his entire professional career, his loyalty garnering special affection from Southampton’s fans who nicknamed him “Le God”.
He was the first midfielder to score 100 goals in the Premier League. He is notable for his record at scoring penalty kicks – converting from the spot 47 times from 48 attempts – and is considered one of the greatest ever from the 12 yard spot.
Following his retirement as a player, he became a football pundit, and currently works as a panelist on the Sky Sports show Soccer Saturday. In 2011 he became honorary president of Guernsey F.C., for whom he briefly registered as a player in May 2013 to help with the club’s fixture congestion.
