El On Turf

Description: El Hadji Diouf United's Senegalese Forward here reciprocates the applause at the Kop End Elland Road after the match. The shot coming from the first Football League Championship game of the 2012-13 campaign against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Elland Road on the 18th August, 2012. Diouf replaced the injured Paul Green in the game against the Wolves on 45 minutes.

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: Kenny, Byram, Peltier, Pearce, White, Green, Austin, Norris, Varney, McCormack, Becchio.
Subs: Diouf for Green, Lees for McCormack.
