MATT Le Tissier has taunted Manchester United fans on Twitter about their club not qualifying for the Champions League.

The Saints legend has annoyed United fans on the social media site by saying Luke Shaw would be better off staying at St Mary’s rather than leaving this summer.

Using his Twitter feed @mattletiss7, Le Tissier tweeted: “It seems man utd fans are getting a bit touchy about me suggesting Luke shaw should stay at SFC a bit longer.”

He then delivered a damning follow up comment about United only finishing seventh in the Premier League in 2013/14: “And that if he does leave it should be for a champions league team??

Among the tweets Le Tissier received from United fans was one from leslie millman: “@mattletiss7 you had your choice in your day but u bottled it! U wanted to stay the big fish in a small pond and won nowt, so butt out MR!”

Another from Ben Durham said: “yep Shaw should stay at SFC so he can be a flat track bully who wins sweet fa through his career... oh wait thats @mattletiss7!”
