Liverpool flop El-Hadji Diouf has claimed that he turned down moves to Manchester United and Barcelona to join the club.
The former Senegal international, who disgraced both himself and the club during his spell at Anfield, said that he regrets ever pulling on the red shirt during his career.
“I can say today that the shirt that I regret wearing the most was Liverpool’s.” he told RMC Sport.
“Because if I were to do that part of my career again, I would have gone to FC Barcelona or Manchester United.
“At the time, they wanted me too.” he added.
Liverpool supporters will wish that he had accepted an offer from rivals Manchester United and gone on to be the same player there that he was at Anfield.
He is one of, if not the, most disliked former Liverpool players with supporters and has had public feuds with both Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher since leaving the club.
Few would welcome him back any time.
