Who Would Have This £1m Madman?

The Daily Mail have today reported that Rovers boss Steve Kean is keen to get rid of Rovers bad-boy, El Hadji Diouf.

Diouf has been at the centre of a host of spats since his move to the Premier League with Liverpool, the most recent of which being with QPR following a horrific leg break for striker Jamie Mackie.

The Senegal forward reportedly shouted to the striker “f**k you, and f**k your leg” whilst the 25-year-old striker lay on the ground in agony. Typically, he then went on to provide the assist for Rovers’ winner.

The former Bolton player was brought to Ewood by former boss, Sam Allardyce, who had developed a strong relationship with the Senegal International at the Trotters.

However, with the player just turned 30 and without a goal all season, it is not hard to see why Rovers boss, Kean, is ready to listen to offers for the front-man.

Who would possibly think of buying Diouf though? He has a history of feuds with players, poorly representing his parent club and collecting far too many yellow cards. Rovers bought the striker for £1million from Sunderland in 2009, just 6 months after the 30-year-old had joined the Teesside club. Then manager, Roy Keane, originally bought the player as he believed that it was a positive thing to have a “player that opposition teams and supporters hate, a thorn in the side.”

Looks like the only way can be down for the Senegalese forward with a move to The Championship the most likely destination. That said, West Ham do have a habit of buying Blackburn’s duff players. What say you football fans? Would you pay £1million for a player to wind up the opposition? I always though that was the fans job…
