Arsenal boss Unai Emery: This Southampton legend my favourite player

Arsenal boss Unai Emery admits Southampton legend Matt Le Tissier was among his favourite players as a youngster.

The former Real Sociedad and Toledo midfielder admits he followed Le Tissier's career while in Spain.

“He's one player who I would watch when I was watching the Premier League in Spain," said the head coach.

“He was one player I would watch a lot of movies of. He was very technical, a quality player with the ball and was amazing for the spectacle.

“My memory of him is that he was a very, very special player."
