Hornets legend Luther Blissett left Watford for AC Milan 31 years ago today

Watford Observer: On this date in Watford FC history On this date in Watford FC history

Thursday, June 20, 1983

Luther Blissett joined AC Milan from Watford for £1m, the first time the club had received a seven-figure fee for a player.

The Italian press was to herald his signing, speaking of "Blissett the cyclone", but his spell at Milan was not a happy one and Blissett rejoined the Hornets a year later.

Luther has gone on record to say that this is NOT true.

They had been tracking Luther for most of the season because he scored lots of goals.

For me Luther Blissett was a superb player...he gave it his all for the club, his records are untouched with regards to Watford.....and will never be replaced or bettered

What a great player we had.
