A Diouf Salute

A Diouf Salute

Description: El Hadji Diouf here United's Senegalese Forward gives the Leeds United faithful, housed in the Gil Merrick Stand, the Leeds United salute. The shot coming from the Football Association Cup 3rd Round Replay at St Andrews against Birmingham City on the 15th January, 2013. Diouf started the game for Leeds and scored the winning goal, via the penalty spot, but was replaced on 90 minutes by Jason Pearce.

The United manager Neil Warnock signed El Hadji Diouf the Senegalese international for the Whites on the 9th August, 2012 on a non-contract basis from Doncaster Rovers. Diouf is a controversial figure in the game and came to Elland Road carrying more than his fare share of baggage, the United manager himself referred to Diouf as being 'lower than a sewer rat' after an incident at Ewood Park which saw Jamie Mackie stretchered off with multiple fractures to his leg. The fans at Elland Road were initially split on the decision to sign the Senegal forward but despite that contention he will always get the faithful's support while he is giving 100% in a White shirt. Diouf made his debut appearance for Leeds coming on as substitute in the Football League Cup game against Shrewsbury Town on the 11th August, 2012.

Leeds United: Ashdown, Byram, Peltier, Lees, Drury, Green, Austin, Brown, Varney, Diouf, McCormack.
Subs: White for Drury, Pearce for Drury.
