It’s probably best to avoid getting on the wrong side of El Hadji Diouf.

The man does not give a damn what he says and will vent his anger, if he feels necessary, to the press.

In an explosive new interview with So Foot magazine - per Eurosport’s Ben Lyttleton - Diouf has once again torn into his former Liverpool teammates Jamie Carragher and Steven Gerrard.

Last September, Diouf accused Gerrard of being racist after the former Liverpool captained described him as the worst player he played with at Anfield.

Then he had another pop at Gerrard in December, labelling the ex-England international an “egotist”, while claiming Carragher is the “biggest turkey” he’s seen on a football pitch.

Diouf calls Carragher a 'f*****g loser'

Diouf, still clearly fuming, has now lashed out at the Liverpool legends once again - and this time his comments are even more brutal.

Starting with Carragher, Diouf commented: “The difference between Jamie [Carragher] and me is that I am a world-class player and he is a s**t.

“The type of s**t that writes a book and mentions me all the time. Me, in my book, he does not warrant one phrase: he's a f*****g loser.”

Diouf mocks Gerrard's England achievements

Then he turned his attention to Gerrard, adding: “And do you think Gerrard means it when he says that El-Hadji Diouf is not a very good player?

“I carried the national team for many years, 14 million fans on my shoulders. When we won, it was thanks to me, when we lost, it was my fault. What I represented for Senegal, he [Gerrard] never managed 100th of that for England. He has never done anything in the World Cup or the Euros.”

Diouf: Gerrard killed his team with slip v Chelsea

He then mentioned that slip against Chelsea. Yep, he went there.

"When I arrived at Liverpool, seeing as I just did what I wanted, he thought that I did not respect the club,” Diouf added. “But he downright killed his team by slipping against Chelsea. If Liverpool has never won the Premier League, it's no accident. What goes around, comes around.”

Diouf flopped at Liverpool

Diouf, 35, is currently a free agent after leaving Malaysian outfit Sabah FA but it’s safe to say he won’t be getting an invite back to Anfield any time soon.

Gerard Houllier signed Diouf for £10 million off the back of his eye-catching performances for Senegal at the 2002 World Cup finals, but he flopped badly at Liverpool before being offloaded to Bolton Wanderers.
