Graeme Le Saux as Footballer
Graeme is a former England international footballer who played most of his career as a left-back, though his pace and skill enabled him to move into a left sided midfield role when required.
Graeme made his England debut in a 1994 friendly against Denmark, going on to represent his country 36 times. The highlight of his England career was representing his country in the 1998 World Cup.
Graeme started his career at St Paul’s (Jersey) before moving to Chelsea in 1987. In 1993 he switched to Blackburn Rovers where he won the 1995 Premier League title with Blackburn. In August 1997, Graeme became the most expensive defender in English football when he returned to Chelsea in a £5million deal. He remained there for six seasons before moved to Southampton. Graeme played at St. Mary’s for two seasons before announcing his retirement in May 2005 following Southampton’s relegation.
