Support For Diouf

Support For Diouf

Submitted: 10/02/12 (Edited 10/02/12)
Description: El Hadji Diouf United's Senegalese Forward on the ball for the Whites here with the Leeds United Academy's own Sam Byram in support. The shot coming from the Football League Championship game against Bristol City at Ashton Gate on the 29th September, 2012. Both Sam and El Hadji played the full game for Leeds while Diouf scored two in the game against the Robins.

Samuel Byram was promoted from United's Youth Academy in 2012 and featured in the Whites' 2012-13 pre-season campaign which saw him score for Leeds in the 3-1 win against Preston North End. The young Midfielder from Leamington Spa made his first team debut in the Football League Cup game against Shrewsbury Town on the 11th August, 2012 and his league debut came just a week later in the home win against Wolverhampton Wanderers. On the 20th August, 2012 'Sam' signed a three year contract for the Whites.

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, Lees, Pearce, Peltier, White, Brown, Austin, Tonge, Diouf, Becchio.
Subs: Gray/Becchio.
