Mane, posted the picture with Diouf to his private Instagram page and the Daily Star report that a number of Liverpool supporters have since commented on it.

Their article states that remarks included:

“One of the best LFC signings Vs Literally the worst LFC signing,” one said in reply.

Another joked: “Bet Gerrard will love you”, while a third replied: “This guy was one of the most overhyped and worst buys of Liverpool FC history”.

“I wouldn’t be hanging round with him,” a fourth posted. “I’m a huge Liverpool fan, the worst signing for me was Diouf, geezer had a bad attitude on and off the pitch, loved the day he left Anfield,” said another user.

“Love you bro, but this @elhadji_diouf11_officiel doesn’t respect the Liverpool GOAT, Stevie G,” a Reds fan concluded.
