The king sport needs more guys like Matt Le Tissier. And boy, needs it soon
A striker with dual nationality, classic one club men, hunter’s instinct and a great fondness for beer. He never stopped drinking, but never stopped giving up.
Southampton had it for 15 seasons. They and nobody else, because playing in a big club is nice, but he preferred to face them wearing the shirt of the loves.
The story of Le Tissier, makes question something: Are there such players today?
The beer is optional, although everybody drinks. Yes, not so often.
Why are there ever fewer players from a single team during their entire career? Times have changed, and the system may be the protagonist in the alteration.
Most seek more money.
Another percentage, a little lower, goes in search of more opportunities.
A small/medium group between them gets them.
And an even smaller group looks for everything mentioned … but in the same club that loves.
The feeling influences the game. One of the most common errors in the analysis of games and scouting is the robotization of the player. They analyze it as an object when they are human beings and the result of a lot of factors other than a soccer field.
The professional footballer will always give you everything on the court, but the footballer who loves his team will always give you everything and more.
Here is the big difference. And here’s why soccer needs more guys like Matt Le Tissier.
The show is insured in any way. It always will be. And it can also always be better.
The soccer player who makes the difference not only plays in his club, he also thinks about it.
And the world of football requires that: thinking, feeling, beer and goals.
