Cortese has ego problem - Le Tissier

Published Add your comment

Southampton hero Matt Le Tissier has accused executive chairman Nicola Cortese of having "a bit of an ego problem" following his shock decision to sack manager Nigel Adkins this week.

Le Tissier said he was stunned by news of Adkins' exit and replacement by Mauricio Pochettino - and slammed Cortese for his failure to account for his decision at a subsequent press conference.

Le Tissier told BBC Radio Five Live's Sportsweek: "I don't know if Nigel was becoming too popular and the chairman didn't like it - he does appear to have a bit of an ego problem."
