'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Diouf lashes out at Kean

Rovers manager Steve Kean's life just got a little bit more difficult after coming in for some criticism from want away El Hadji Diouf.

Diouf has been frozen out at Rovers in recent times as Steve Kean looks to put his mark on the Blackburn side and with Diouf being told he is to find another club this has drawn a sting from the wasps tail.

Diouf has criticised the new set up and believes he is being used as a shadow Sam Allardyce.

Diouf told the Sun - 'Nobody used to want to come and play at Ewood Park. It used to be hell. But right now everyone wants to play Blackburn.

'A lot of things have gone - that spirit we had to win the game for the fans, for the manager and for ourselves.'

The fiery Senegalese winger also took the change in starting personnel personally and can't see who will make a difference as Rovers look to get back on the points trail.

Diouf continued - 'Who is going to come in and make the difference? I don't see it.

'I don't want to see them relegated. But I know it's going to be hard. I was one of the biggest players at the club. Then it all changed under the new manager.

'If the players he had were better than me, OK I understand that. But right now that is not the case.'

What Diouf appears to be flummoxed about is the change in attitude he feels Kean has shown towards him since he took over from Allardyce back in December.

Diouf added - 'When he was coach, he used to talk to me all the time. He'd tell me I was the club's best player.

'Then when he became the manager, he changed his opinion of me.

'The problem he has is with Sam Allardyce and he has put that on my back.'

Basically he's annoyed, he's trying to force a move and he is pretty bitter.

This to me seems to be 50% speaking his mind, 50% bitterness.

Haha, proof that Kean is a liar "Dioufy, you are the club's best player".

Rightly or wrongly, he desperately needs a move somewhere and so should surely behave in as professional a manner as he can in the meantime (like turning up for training for example). I hope he does get his move - best thing all round.

Worth also bearing in mind that Diouf has been telling Goodwillie that he should have joined Rangers in training. If i was Kean i would tell him to stay away from the club and train in his back garden.

never wanted him at rovers, even now, i wouldnt feel his existence either way, never thought of him as arovers player, most importantly he is not the player he thinks he is.

I forgot he was even at our club still. He's annoyed Sam hasn't come in for him and is spouting off to try and alert other clubs.

Does't really matter what he says now, he isn't going to play for us again. Shame it went belly up after he had arguably his best spell for us. Send him to Q.P.R... :-)
