Graeme Le Saux is a former England international footballer who played most of his career as a left-back, though his football pace and skill enabled him to move into a left sided midfield role when required. Graeme made his England debut in a 1994 friendly against Denmark going on to represent his country 36 times. The highlight of his England career was representing his country in the 1998 football World Cup.
Graeme started his career at St Paul's (Jersey) and moved to Chelsea football club in 1987. In 1993 he switched to Blackburn Rovers where he won the 1995 Premier League title with Blackburn. In August 1997 Graeme became the most expensive defender in English football when he returned to Chelsea football club in a £5 million deal. Graeme remained there for six seasons before moving to Southampton football club. Graeme played at St. Mary's for two seasons announcing his retirement in May 2005 following Southampton's relegation.
Since retiring from football, Graeme has enjoyed punditry and commentary roles on TV and Radio. He has also moved into non sport formats presenting on programmes such as BBC2's 'Working Lunch' where he has the chance to further develop his knowledge and interest in financial and business affairs.
More recently Graeme's compassionate nature took centre stage when he took part in the ITV series 'Extinct', travelling to Rwanda to highlight the plight of mountain gorillas.
