Former Chelsea star’s best achievement was winning Premier League... with another team

Graeme Le Saux looks back on his career, in which he won the Premier League title with Blackburn Rovers and the FA Cup with Chelsea.

Former Chelsea star Graeme Le Saux has been reflecting on his career.

The ex-England international defender was a decorated player and won multiple honours in his club career.

After starting his career at London club Chelsea and playing for them until 1993, the now-retired left-back moved to Blackburn Rovers.

Saux had four successful years at Rovers, winning the Premier League title in 1994-95 - just a season after finishing second in the English top flight.

Chelsea came calling back in 1997, and between then until 2003 Le Saux was one of the best players in the Premier League.

Le Saux won a number of trophies in his second spell at Stamford Bridge, including the FA Cup (2000), League Cup (1998), UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup (1998) and UEFA Super Cup (1998).

However, it was winning the Premier League with Rovers that Le Saux cherished the most, as he told the FourFourTwo magazine: ‘Winning the Premier League with Blackburn was probably the pinnacle for me in terms of achievements, but in terms of quality the team I went back to Chelsea was sensational. We won the FA Cup, League Cup, Cup Winners’ Cup and Super Cup’.
