Matt Le Tissier: Meeting cancelled with Southampton chairman

Matt Le Tissier says Southampton chairman Nicola Cortese has cancelled planned clear-the-air talks with the Saints legend.

Le Tissier, who spent his entire career at Southampton, has been highly critical of Cortese's reign at the south coast club.

The Sky Sports pundit was particularly bemused by the decision to sack Nigel Adkins last month despite two successive promotions and signs that the team were beginning to settle in the Premier League.

Cortese brought in former Espanyol manager Mauricio Pochettino despite the Argentine not speaking English and the club have lost one and drawn two games so far under his tenure.

Former England international Le Tissier has been public in his criticism of the chairman and Cortese had arranged to meet him in an attempt to ease tensions.

But Le Tissier wrote on Twitter on Wednesday: "Meeting with our wonderful exec chairman been cancelled #surprisesurprise #somethingtohidenicola."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
