Mixes up ex-pros from the Channel Islands.



One Manchester United fan got a selfie with Graeme Le Saux apparently under the mistaken impression that he was Matt Le Tissier.

Le Saux was at Old Trafford to see his former team Chelsea draw 1-1 with the Red Devils in Sunday’s match.


And one fan mistook him for another ’90s Premier League star and erstwhile England international.

It’s not hard to see how the confusion arose – aside from their respective surnames beginning with Le, they also both hail from the Channel Islands.

Everyone’s taking Le Tiss, that’s Graham Norton.

Le Saux is from Saint Helier in Jersey, while Le Tissier was born in Saint Peter Port, Guernsey.

They also both had spells at Southampton during their playing careers, although only Le Tissier spent the bulk of his career there.


He scored 209 goals in 540 games across all competitions for the south coast side, firmly cementing himself as a club legend.

Le Saux was part of Blackburn’s 1995 title-winning side and also lifted the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup with Chelsea in 1998.

That’s Titus Bramble. He plays for Barcelona.
