Former Liverpool player Bernard Diomede has been speaking about his career, including the handful of appearances he made for the Reds under Gerard Houllier.
The winger did not settle on Merseyside after a move from Auxerre in 2003, but was there long enough to be appalled by the shocking behaviour of the notorious El-Hadji Diouf.
Asked about something crazy from his playing days, Diomede, now 45, was instant with his response.
According to Sport Witness, he said: “El-Hadji Diouf in Liverpool. When you arrive in England, you are nobody. Especially in a club with strong identity with Gerrard, Fowler, Owen, Carragher.
“He feared no one, was like at home and did not respect the rules: you had to speak English and he spoke French, he kept it up all the time, mocked the dressing room, on the bus.”
Diomede is just the latest in a line of players to criticise Diouf, who has something of a reputation no matter who you speak to.
The ex-Senegal international has taken swipes at the likes of Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher since leaving Anfield, and last week accused the Reds of ‘bottling’ the Premier League title race last season.
Most players are grateful for the fact that they were able to play for the Reds, but that certainly cannot be said about Diouf.
