Matt Le Tissier not surprised by Harry Redknapp claims

Former Southampton and England forward Matt Le Tissier admits that he is not surprised by Harry Redknapp's claims that players would try to avoid international duty.

Former Southampton and England forward Matt Le Tissier has admitted that he is not surprised by Harry Redknapp's claims that players would try to avoid international duty.

The Queens Park Rangers manager has claimed that players would approach him to try to get them out of upcoming international fixtures during his spell as Tottenham Hotspur boss.

"I think there are players that aren't that fussed about pulling on the England shirt if it's just a friendly, especially if they've been around a long time," Le Tissier told BBC Radio 5 live.

"It doesn't have the same meaning for those players. From that point of view it doesn't really shock me that he came out and said that."

Le Tissier won eight caps for England between 1994 and 1997.
