El-Hadji Diouf

Former Senegal international striker El-Hadji Diouf has talked about his biggest football career regret in his latest interview.

He spoke to GFFN via readliverpoolfc about his failed Liverpool career.

According to him, the controversial figure regrets his decision to join Liverpool over other European heavyweights like Manchester United and Barcelona after he swapped France for England in 2002.

Diouf signed for the Reds after his heroics at the 2002 FIFA World Cup tournament in South Korea and Japan.

He was part of the Senegal squad that surprised the footballing world by reaching the quarterfinals at the tournament.

El-Hadji Diouf was a key member of the Senegal team that reached the last eight of the competition before they were knocked out by European side Turkey.

His heroics in South Korea and Japan earned him a big money move to the Premier League.

Liverpool reportedly paid French side Lens a whooping sum of £10m to secure his signing shortly after the 2002 World Cup tournament.

He went on to emerge as a big flop for the Reds.

Diouf scored just six goals in 80 appearances over two seasons.

He went on to join fellow Premier League side Bolton Wanderers after his failed spell with the Reds.
