Former England and Southampton striker Matt Le Tissier accused authority figures of withholding information about possible links between the Covid vaccine and footballers collapsing on the pitch during an appearance on Joey Barton’s new podcast.
Le Tissier has repeatedly promoted conspiracy theories about the Covid vaccine over the past three years, and previously claimed that the vaccine may have caused more incidents of footballers collapsing due to heart problems.
He gave an impassioned speech at a gala dinner in Leeds in September, where he declared he was carrying out an investigation into the collapses, and speaking on Barton’s podcast claimed his efforts had not been helped by others withholding key data.
‘We are still trying to dig deeper to get the real numbers. It’s really difficult, people hide all kinds of information,” he said in the Common Sense with Joey Barton podcast.
“I have always said, based on my experiences, that I have lived on this planet for a long time and I have watched a lot of sport and I knew that I had never seen young, fit, healthy athletes collapse at the rate that they do.” I’ve been breaking down for the past few years and I knew something was wrong and I felt like I needed to say something about it.

“I couldn’t sit still and watch TV, it wasn’t just football either, a lot of athletes had heart problems and it was just ridiculous. It was just a huge elephant in the room that no one was talking about.
And I felt like someone had to say something. “I obviously have a bit of a profile, I couldn’t keep my mouth shut.”
Barton, who has sparked controversy in recent months with her views on women working in men’s football, suggested Le Tissier’s refusal to back down when questioning authority could be attributed to sheer stubbornness.
Le Tissier, 55, agreed with this and criticized the government’s handling of Covid.
“I don’t think (stubbornness) is a particularly bad trait, especially when fighting corrupt organizations, and that’s what I think our government is,” Le Tissier added.
This is not the first time Le Tissier has blamed corruption for global problems, as he has also criticized high-profile people and the media in recent years.

Le Tissier previously hinted that Gates could be linked to the death of Tanzanian President John Magafuli in 2021.
Le Tissier criticized David Beckham for taking a photo with Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates during a conversation with former footballer David Cotterill on a podcast last year.
Le Tissier has periodically criticized Gates, questioning his involvement in the Covid vaccine.
In 2021, he appeared to hint that Gates could be linked to the death of Tanzanian President John Magafuli.
Magafuli died in March 2021 from heart complications, just days after the country’s prime minister declared that he was “healthy and working hard.”
On Twitter, Le Tissier retweeted a post suggesting that the media had ‘lied’ about certain events such as the 2022 Russian Bucha massacre.
Le Tissier later posted a screenshot of a Guardian article criticizing Magafuli’s anti-vaccine stance shortly before her death, noting that the article was supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
The eight-cap England international has also previously suggested that the Russian Bucha massacre in 2022 was exaggerated by the media, and questioned the legitimacy of the 9/11 disaster on social media last year.
His 9/11 conspiracy theory was criticized by his former Soccer Saturday colleague Jeff Stelling, who accused him of talking “absolute nonsense”.
The couple recently sat down to chat on another podcast. The best of football with Jeff Stellingwhere Le Tissier insisted he has “no regrets” about his behavior on social media and would “do exactly the same thing again”, despite claiming it cost him his job at Soccer Saturday in 2020.
