El-Hadji Diouf has never quite got over his unhappy time at Liverpool.
The Senegalese international made the high profile move to Anfield after impressing at the 2002 World Cup. However, the striker failed to live up to expectations with just six goals in 79 appearances.
The 38-year-old has badmouthed the club ever since leaving; now he’s at it once again.
Speaking to FourFourTwo, he said. “I don’t see them doing as well as they did last season. They had the chance to win the league title; they had it in their hands and then let it slip.
“They were seven points ahead around Christmas – how Manchester City got it in the end beats my mind. As they say in England, I think they bottled it.”
To accuse a team who finished on 97 points in the Premier League of bottling it is simply ridiculous.
El-Hadji Diouf seems intent on riling Liverpool fans at every opportunity.
This is the latest of Diouf’s continuous digs towards Liverpool. In the past the Senegalese forward has slated the club and Anfield legend Steven Gerrard.
An ex-player who just can’t get over his failure at the club and in England, Diouf is more known than spitting than scoring during his time on Merseyside.
The fact he’s got so much to say about Liverpool will bemuse and anger fans in equal measure.
