Former Liverpool striker El-Hadji Diouf has today had his say on two of his former teammates on Merseyside, taking the opportunity of an interview with BBC Africa to air some of his unsurprisingly harsh opinions.
Diouf, who spent 3 years with Liverpool before being sent out on loan and subsequently sold to Bolton Wanderers, was not exactly prolific during his time at Anfield, netting 3 goals in 55 Premier League appearances.
However, his less-than-stellar stint with the Reds has in no way caused the 36-year-old to refrain from running his mouth regarding his former teammates ‘Pool teammates, with Diouf having spoken openly about his lack of respect for legend Steven Gerrard on countless occasions in the past.
And today’s interview is no different, with the Senegalese hero quickly pointing to Gerrard’s lack of success at international level as a reason to take aim at the former English international.
‘He never did anything for his country.’
‘I’m Mr. El Hadji Diouf, Mr. Senegal.’
‘He’s Mr. Liverpool. Senegal is bigger than Liverpool.’
‘He has to know that.’
He goes on to suggest that fellow Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher’s successful career was purely down to the fact that he was Scouse, before using some bizarre reasoning to confirm that he is ‘a good guy.’
His points are wild and nonsensical, but entertaining nonetheless…
