Matt Le Tissier reveals his family thought he had ‘mental health issues’ because of his views on the Covid pandemic… but insists they ‘now realise I wasn’t mad and was talking a lot of sense’

Matthew Le Tisser has claimed that his family and close friends thought he had ‘mental health issues’ over his controversial views during the coronavirus pandemic.

The Southampton legend was an outspoken figure throughout the pandemic, regularly making headlines with his viewpoints on social media and in interviews.

Among his claims were that PCR tests ‘were the biggest fraud ever perpetrated on mankind’, dying Covid patients in Italy ‘were actors’ and that the government’s interference in people’s lives during lockdown was an ‘injustice’.

In an interview with GB News, the 54-year-old admitted his views could have contributed to him being axed by Sky Sports, and that his family and close friends thought he had ‘gone a bit mad’.

When asked if he has paid a price for his views he responded: ‘I guess the price people will probably point to is I lost my job. Sky may tell you something different.

‘They told me they just wanted to take the show in a different direction but they didn’t deny that it had something to do with my posts on social media.

‘So, possibly my job. I guess in the early days probably my family and close friends thought I’d gone a bit mad because I was kind of going against the narrative and they thought I had mental health issues, quite frankly.

‘I knew that I didn’t and thankfully I stuck to my guns and what’s transpired over the last two or three years – a lot of them have now come to realise that I wasn’t mad and that I was actually talking a lot of sense.

‘I wasn’t right about everything but I was right about a lot of things.’

The Saints legend also told GB News that it was ‘very early’ into the pandemic that he thought things weren’t right.

He said: ‘From the moment the videos came out of China with people collapsing in the street. That’s the moment I went “that doesn’t look genuine, that doesn’t look real”.

‘It’s never happened anywhere else in the world. But those videos were why we had to shut down the economy and ruined a whole bunch of people’s lives from the lower and middle classes and make the people at the top richer.’

Le Tissier, who is unvaccinated, added: ‘I have no idea (how I survived the pandemic). I have not seen a doctor in the last three and a half years, it’s remarkable. Even if I needed one (appointment) I would have to wait a long time anyway.’
