Former Liverpool forward El-Hadji Diouf has labelled club legends Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher as “an egotist” and “useless”.
Carragher recently said that the Senegal international was the worst player he had played with in his career, while Gerrard said that Diouf was his least favourite team-mate.
And that hasn’t gone down well with Diouf, who once spat on a Celtic supporter during a UEFA Cup game.
He has said that Carragher is the last person he would “want to spend Christmas with” while labelling the defender a “turkey”.
“The person I would least want to spend Christmas with is Jamie Carragher. I hate him.” he told So Foot magazine.
“He was the biggest turkey I’ve seen on a pitch. I found him useless.” he added.
Diouf went on to say that Gerrard wasn’t interested in Liverpool and was only concerned with himself.
“Steven Gerrard is a great club player but an egotist.” he said.
“He didn’t care about Liverpool winning. All that mattered for him was getting on the scoresheet.” he continued.
Diouf was brought to Anfield by Gerard Houllier in the Summer of 2002 and turned out to be one of the least popular players in club history.
Nobody was sad when his days at Anfield were brought to an end and he has made himself less popular since with his regular criticisms of club legends Gerrard and Carragher.
