There are few footballers in the modern game who illicit such hatred as El Hadji Diouf. Sure there are players who always get targeted for abuse due to perhaps their extra marital affairs with team-mates fiancées, or those who anger their former club’s supporters but as far as players who appear to be hated by fans and fellow players alike the the Blackburn Rovers man.
However Diouf does possess some talent and if he is indeed available for nothing then Avram Grant may well be wise to bring him to Upton Park. Perhaps he will be a changed man? Maybe he will realise the error of his ways? Learn how to behave? Or perhaps more important maybe he can help provide the club with some an injection of attacking talent to help them steer clear of the drop.
