Former Southampton striker Matthew Le Tissier has opened on how close he once came to signing for Tottenham.
Le Tissier, who admitted that he was a Spurs fan as a kid, ended up staying with the Saints for the whole of his career, despite often being linked with some of England’s best clubs.
One of those was Tottenham.
Not long after winning PFA Young Player of the Year in 1989-1990, the 51-year-old had the opportunity to sign for Spurs – and although said he was tempted to possibly enhance his chances of playing more for England, he decided against it.
You can see Le Tissier tell the story below.
