Graeme made his England debut in a 1994 friendly against Denmark, going on to represent his country 36 times. The highlight of his England career was representing his country in the 1998 World Cup.

Graeme started his career at St Paul’s (Jersey) before moving to Chelsea in 1987. In 1993 he switched to Blackburn Rovers where he won the 1995 Premier League title with Blackburn. In August 1997, Graeme became the most expensive defender in English football when he returned to Chelsea in a £5million deal. He remained there for six seasons before moved to Southampton. Graeme played at St. Mary’s for two seasons before announcing his retirement in May 2005 following Southampton’s relegation.

Since his retirement Graeme has enjoyed punditry and co-commentary roles on TV and Radio. He has also proved to be a popular choice on the corporate speaking circuit with his ‘The Business of Football’ package. Graeme talks about his early days on the pitch and lessons that he has learnt. He transfers all of the skills and tips from the footballing world into concise and adaptable tools for the business market.

Graeme was involved in visiting Delhi alonside the former Mayor of London Ken Livingstone to promote business, tourism, culture and sport between the capital and India. He unveiled Delhi’s very own replica of ‘Big Ben’ representing a tourism agreement between the two cities. Both Graeme and Chelsea chief executive Peter Kenyon, were in high demand from India’s press pack, discussing the Premier League and football in India.

Graeme also celebrated the success of his book, ‘Leftfield’ released in 2007, which explored his footballing career in detail, tackling the gay slurs that dogged his days in the game and how he was vilified as being ‘too smart’ for football.

In 2009, Graeme appeared on ITV's Dancing on Ice, and he has also written numerous articles for The Telegraph newspaper amongst others. 2010 also saw the development of the Graeme Le Saux 2010 Football Programmes.
