Graeme Le Saux is a former England international footballer who played most of his career as a left-back at Chelsea, Blackburn Rovers and Southampton. He played for England 36 times, the highlight being the 1998 World Cup.
In his club playing career, Graeme scored 20 goals through 403 club appearances. He was twice named in the Professional Footballers' Association Team of the Year, in 1995 with Blackburn and in 1998 with Chelsea. His return to Chelsea in 1997 in a £5 million transfer made him the most expensive defender in English football at the time. As an England international, he made 36 senior appearances from 1994 until 2000, including starting all four England games at the 1998 FIFA World Cup in France, and scoring one international goal, against Brazil.
Graeme retired from football in 2005 and now enjoys his punditry and commentary roles on TV and Radio. He is also proving to be a popular choice on the corporate speaking circuit with his Business of Football talks, in which he offers an enlightening insight into the workings of football clubs seen through the eyes of one of the UK’s brightest players. He motivates audiences though some of his most valuable and adaptable lessons, mostly learnt during his time at Blackburn where the team was transformed from an under-achieving squad to a Premiership winning club. The intricacies of this transformation formed a fundamental part of Graeme's career and he uses this knowledge to provide concise and adaptable tools for the business market.
