Sunderland Leave Door Open For Allardyce

Sunderland Leave Door Open For Allardyce

Sunderland forward El Hadji Diouf is understood to be a January target of new Blackburn Rovers manager Sam Allardyce, and it looks as though Sunderland would let Diouf go.

Allardyce took Diouf to Bolton Wanderers during his time as manager at the Reebok Stadium and got the Senegalese Internationals career going again. Newspaper reports are linking Allardyce with a move to sign him again, this time from Sunderland and their caretaker-manager Ricky Sbragia isn't ruling out the move.

Sbragia told Setanta Sports News: "That is the sort of thing I will leave to the people upstairs to deal with. In general if anybody wants our players, they know where to come.

"If Dioufy wants to go and if Blackburn are interested in him, then fine. I have no problem with that, as long as it is done right.

"If Dioufy wants to go and the deal is right then he can go and I have no problem, but talking to Dioufy recently he seems quite happy.

"He has been off a week due to his wife having a baby, but I think it might just be speculation.
"

Big Sam has a track record of getting the best out of players, he did this once with Diouf at Bolton so if the price was right he might be able to do it again with him at Ewood Park?!?!

I've personally never really liked El Hadji Diouf, but you can't deny that he did well at Bolton after a poor spell with Liverpool. This is probably just newspaper talk though as Big Sam is bound to be linked with moves for a lot of his former players.

lIVERPOOL ONCE PAID ALOT OF MONEY FOR HIM, HE IS VERY CONTROVERSIAL ABIT LIKE ROBBIE SAVAGE IN THAT SENSE, AND SOMEONE I HAVE NEVER LIKED, HOWEVER WHEN HE IS ON HIS GAME HE IS EFFECTIVE AND HE COULD BE POTENTIALLY A GOOD SIGNING

Diouf's the biggest scumbag in the Premier League, he's always f#ckin cheating. I've hated him ever since his blatent dive to earn a penalty against us a couple of years ago. He's not even that good a striker anyway, i hope there's nothing in this story!!

Didn't Allardice play him down the right at his time at Bolton, and therefore is actively looking for a right winger...? Which is what we all want...

He is a right winger in most peoples books. I think he is dirty but he could do a job here, if Sam can get the best out of him. We have also been linked with J-Lloyd Samuel, Kevin Nolan, Kevin Davies and Ricky Gardner as well so the journalists are working overtime on the old club transfers rumours!!!

Kevin Nolan would be a great buy we need a strong centre midfield, but i don't want to see samuel davies diouf or gardener in a rovers shirt, there simply not good enough we want to improve the team under big sam not just add more average players to it. if roque goes big sam says city wont have enough money so he must be thinkin the £100m's to consider it which is stupid money but i'd let him go for that price

Gardner is def good enough for Rovers... quick, can play left abck and left wing, without doubt would be a good buy. I agree with you about Davies though.
