Diouf Knows He Can Win Boo Boys Over
El Hadji Diouf has turned on the charm in a frank and honest statement to Rovers official website.
Spit, as Bom Bom affectionately knows him as, believes the only way to win the fans round is by doing the business on the pitch.
He also loves the fact he is back with the man who always get the best out of him - Sam Allardyce.
Diouf, speaking to rovers.co.uk - 'I remember before I went to Bolton [from Liverpool] the fans there said a lot of bad things about me but if you go back to Bolton today everyone there loves me.
'I just need to believe in myself, play my best football and the Blackburn fans' opinion can turn around.
'I know my character is very strong, but I don't think having a big character is a bad thing. Everything I do in my life I do 100%.
'Yes I'm a bad loser, but I'm not a cheat and I don't like cheats.
'It's a good thing to be a bad loser, when I was younger I used to cry if I lost a football match. Now I'm bigger I can't cry any more but I can still feel bad.'
'Me and Sam used to have a wonderful time at Bolton, we finished fifth in the Premier League one season and sixth twice.
'He knows me so well and understands me more than anyone, that's why when the opportunity came up to come to Blackburn there was never anywhere else to go.'
Time will tell El Hadj, we need you more than we thought now with Brett out.
