Former Southampton and England striker Matt Le Tissier has revealed that he rejected a move to Liverpool. Le Tissier spent 16 years at Southampton between 1986 and 2002, scoring 209 goals in 540 appearances for the Saints – spending the entirety of his professional career at the south coast club. The former striker earned just eight full England caps and conceded that staying at Southampton “probably” hurt his international chances, but added that, had he have been given the chance, he would not have opted for a move to Manchester United. Le Tissier’s claim has been received with scepticism on Twitter by fans, many of whom claim that he would have opted to leave Southampton had he have been given the opportunity of moving to Old Trafford. The Guernsey-born forward hit back at those claims by revealing that he turned down the offer of moving to Liverpool, who he claimed “were better at the time”. He wrote on his official Twitter account: “I turned down liverpool who were better at the time.”Read more Liverpool transfer news.
