Ex-Liverpool star launches yet another scathing attack on club legend

Former Liverpool man El-Hadji Diouf has once again criticised club legend Jamie Carragher, claiming he was viewed favourably because he ‘is a Scouser’.

Senegalese forward Diouf flopped at Anfield after joining the club for £10million from Lens in 2002, scoring only six goals in 79 matches.

It is not the first time that the 38-year-old has dug out a Liverpool legend as he previously hit out at former captain Gerrard – who admitted he had “no respect” for Diouf in his autobiography.

“Steven Gerrard is a great club player but an egotist,” Diouf said in an interview with French magazine So Foot.

“He didn’t care about Liverpool winning – all that mattered for him was getting on the scoresheet.

“The person I would least want to spend Christmas with is Jamie Carragher. I hate him. He was the biggest turkey I’ve seen on a pitch. I found him useless.”

Now, Diouf has decided to go after Sky Sports pundit Carragher – who made over 700 appearances for the club – once again by criticising his ability and the preferential treatment he received.

“He was a right-footed player with two left feet,” Diouf told beIN Sports.

“If he wasn’t a Scouser, a son of Liverpool, he would never have had the career he did.”
