Rovers to stand by EHD over QPR row

Rovers to stand by EHD over QPR row

It seems that far from being 'embarrassed' by the actions of El Hadji Diouf as Neil Warnock implied, Blackburn Rovers are set to back their man after the Diouf/Mackie incident which caused such a stir at the weekend in the FA Cup third round.

Diouf was slaughtered for aiming a verbal tirade at Mackie after he had broke his leg and was on the floor after thundering into Gael Givet at a rate of knots that a jet ski would be proud of.

But the club are still keen to back Diouf and may even offer him the chance to respond (please let that happen, it would be priceless).

The Guardian are reporting - 'Blackburn Rovers are set to stand by El Hadji Diouf after the striker was widely castigated for his alleged behaviour during the FA Cup meeting with Queens Park Rangers on Saturday.

Diouf stands accused of abusing and taunting Jamie Mackie while the QPR forward was lying on the turf with a broken leg. Blackburn officials will hold further talks with their controversial player tomorrow and are of a mind to issue a statement in his defence.

A senior Blackburn figure said the club have a 'duty of care' to Diouf, who could himself offer a direct response to Mackie's claims.'

The tackle was disgusting and it was an intentional effort to harm another player. Mackie got what he deserved. By the looks of it he was trying to injure Gael and his plan backfired. So no sympathy from me.

oziroversfan What utter rubbish you talk, it was a 50 50 ball that two committed players went for, Mackie did not try to injury Gael. To say any footballer deserves to be injured is disgusting and you belong in the same sewer as Diouf

It was a clumsy challenge - Mackie didn't get the ball, clattered Givet and broke his own leg - but Diouf shouldn't have stood over him and said the things he said.

oziroversfan Regardless of what you think of the challenge, he did not go into to injury the other player while I admit it was not the best tackle I have seen a lot worse , so to say Mackie got what deserved is just unbelievable and shows that you care very little about football. I dont care about Diouf its not as if he has been a model footballer over the years,while I have no issue with a club supporting there own players but there is a line and I feel Blackburn will be looked at poorly if they support Diouf.

Diouf was right, and i would of done the same if it had been on the park on a sunday, the tackle was terrible, Mackie is just lucky he didnt get a smack in the face too, cos if he had of got up, i'm sure the Rovers players would of run in and give him what for. Club to stand by Diouf? Can't even believe we are having this conversation, stand by him for what? He aint done anything wrong and this has been totally blown out of propotion as these things are said in nearly every game every week in every town. Rovers in the 4th Round, Bye Bye Qpr and take those dirty B******S With YOU
