QPR manager Neil Warnock has launched an astonishing attack on Blackburn Rovers winger El-Hadji Diouf following their FA Cup defeat.
The Championship side suffered a 1-0 loss to Rovers in the FA Cup on Saturday, but it was Diouf’s reaction to Jamie Mackie’s serious injury that annoyed Warnock.
The Senegalese forward issued a verbal volley at Mackie who was stretchered off and taken to hospital where it was confirmed he suffered a double leg break.
“He’s a fantastic lad, so that’s why I was disappointed when El-Hadji Diouf starts, the lads were furious at him.
“He’d broken his leg. There was no need for it. I think the Blackburn people were embarrassed.
“I can’t buy people like that. I don’t know why he wants to take on the world every week.
“There was no need for him to put the finger up and talk to Mackie like he did. He was calling him a disgrace and all sorts of things.
“I think for many years I think he’s been the ‘gutter’ type of boy. I was going to call him a sewer rat, but that might insult the sewer rats. I think he’s the lowest of the low.
“I can’t see him being at Blackburn much longer because I can’t see Steve Kean putting up with someone like that in the dressing room when he’s creating a new image.
“I think he’ll be the first to go. Good riddens. I hope he goes abroad. I won’t miss watching him. Sign him? I wouldn’t want to talk to him.” (Sky Sports)
Neil Warnock and El-Hadji Diouf are two characters of the game who inspire a certain amount of irritation and it seems that the QPR boss is not at all happy about the behaviour of the Blackburn Rovers attacker and Warnock being Warnock, is not afraid to speak his mind on the matter.
Diouf is generally hated by most opposition supporters and clearly his spitting antics and the berating of a ball boy a couple of years back have helped paint the Senegalese international in a bad light and this latest incident will not help win him any fans.
