Oooh, gracias. So there's an unmentioned object then. Like "ganarle a alguien".

I agree with Wrholt that there is an expression "seguirle los pasos a alguien", but your example, "síguele al hombre", it's a case of "leísmo". "Síguelo" would be better for speakers away from Spain, since it's a direct object.

Mi problema es que en facebook dice que "le sigo a la gente." Eso es leísmo?
