Liverpool fans slam El Hadji-Diouf

Liverpool have made some very questionable signings over the years.

The arrival of Andy Carroll in 2011 was one of the most high-profile deals that didn’t work out – he cost the club £36m, which was not only a club-record but also the highest fee paid for an English player. He only managed to scored 11 times in 58 appearances for the Reds, but others such as Alberto Aquilani and Paul Konchesky also failed to make the grade at Anfield – those two managed just 46 appearances between them.

What result does this iconic Liverpool image belong to?

However, in response to a question from Twitter page Empire of the Kop, it seems that one man takes the trophy for being the worst Liverpool signing ever according to the fans – El Hadji-Diouf.

On the pitch, the retired Senegal international really struggled to make an impact. In 80 matches for the Anfield outfit, he scored six goals and managed just five assists.

Some fans were far more scathing in their judgements of the former Bolton Wanderers man.

Indeed, Diouf was far from a savoury character. Infamous incidents included spitting at Celtic fans in the UEFA Cup and laughing at Jamie Mackie when he had his leg broken on the pitch against QPR, and there are plenty of others too.

Is El Hadji-Diouf Liverpool's worst-ever signing?

Fortunately for Liverpool, he is now just a distant memory.
