The Hadji strikes back

El Hadji Diouf has stepped out this afternoon to defend himself against the oncoming attack from London that started last Saturday afternoon.

Diouf has denied the claims made by Neil Warnock that he abused Jamie Mackie whilst he was lying on the floor in agony.

Even the QPR players have been twittering about the bad behaviour of Diouf but the Senegalese winger has today had his say.

Diouf told Sky Sports News - 'I am very sorry for the lad to have broken his leg, the QPR player.

'But what Warnock said - I never said that.

'After the game I argued with some players, that's it.

'When the lad broke his leg, I never said anything back to him.

'I never talked to him, you can ask Benjani or Ryan Nelsen.

'Everything Warnock said is not right.'

Diouf also had a few choice words to aim at Neil Warnock over his verbal tirade and responded with his usual charm and wit ;)

He continued - 'I am not disappointed with what Warnock said - who is Warnock? He is nothing to me.

'He is not Alex Ferguson, he is not Arsene Wenger, he is not Sam Allardyce or an important manager.'

Diouf even remarked he felt that his previous transgressions were often held against him.

He said: 'Of course, but I am a strong man and I can survive with that.'

the game needs characters like Diouf, In all good films and drama's there has to be a good villain for the hero to take on, Diouffy is just like other plaers of the past who people just love to hate whilst his own fans love him, i.e Speedie, Savage, Batty ect
