INFO:
Le Saux was a left-back or left-side midfielder. His professional career started as Chelsea in 1989. He played a bit less than 100 games and scored 9 goals in four seasons before being sold to Blackburn Rovers due to his attitude during a match against Southampton when he threw the shirt away after being substituted. In the new club he became one of the best full-backs in English football. He played with Blackburn 152 matches, scoring 7 goals between 1993 and 1997. He then came back to Chelsea as a better player and had a most successful career in this second spell. This time he played 192 matches, scoring 7 times, between 1997 and 2003. After leaving Chelsea he played two seasons at Southampton and eventually retired in 2005. The full-back also won 36 caps for England and scored once.
Le Saux primary position was left-back but due to his versatility it wasn't easy to decide for him a permanent position in his early career. At Blackburn he was a regular starter in defence on the left side and here his career flourished giving him the chance to become also a first choice for England. When he came back to Chelsea he also played as left-side midfielder and was one of the most constant player in Premier League. He was renowned for his good technique and great speed thanks to which he often ran down the left flank to send many good crosses. He wasn't only able in attack but also in defence, having good anticipation ability. During his career Le Saux had many injury problems. Moreover he said in an interview that he couldn't reach his full potential because he was considered by many of his teammates as homosexual due to the fact that he never went out with them, for example to drink in a bar, and this affected him for many years.
