Matthew Le Tissier () (born 14 October 1968) is a former professional footballer and football television presenter. He represented England at international level. He works as a football pundit for Sky Sports and is the honorary president of Guernsey F.C..

Le Tissier spent his entire professional club career with Southampton and won eight caps for the England national football team before turning to non-League football in 2002; his loyalty garnered special affection from Southampton's fans who nicknamed him "Le God".

A creative attacking midfielder, with exceptional technical skills, Le Tissier is the second-highest ever scorer for Southampton behind Mick Channon and was voted PFA Young Player of the Year in 1990. He was the first midfielder to score 100 goals in the Premier League. He is notable for his record at scoring penalty kicks – converting from the spot 47 times from 48 attempts – and is considered one of the greatest ever from the 12-yard spot.

Following his retirement as a player, Le Tissier became a football pundit, and currently works as a panelist on the Sky Sports show Soccer Saturday. In 2011, he became honorary president of Guernsey F.C., for whom he briefly registered as a player in May 2013 to help with the club's fixture congestion.
