‘At half-time, in the dressing room. Stevie G is all like, “You have to pass, you have to pass” and [Diouf] just loses it.
‘He didn’t speak English. His English was rubbish. You know what he did? They hated each other so much. Steven Gerrard arrives, he insults Diouf. “Hey, you f*****”.
‘And [Diouf] couldn’t answer, so he grabs [former Liverpool boss] Gerard Houllier and says: “Tell him, I’ll f*** his mum”.

‘He came in and said: “I’m not his mate, I’ll do him in straight away”.’
Diouf left Liverpool for Bolton in 2005 after scoring just six goals in 80 appearances for the Premier League giants,
Gerrard, on the other hand, would go on to cement his place as one of the club’s greatest-ever players.
