Controversial striker El Hadji Diouf looks set to leave relegated Doncaster Rovers at the end of the season
Manager Dean Saunders lauded the much-travelled striker’s contributions to the Rovers cause, but admitted managing the Senegal international was not easy.
Diouf formed a potent strike partnership with Bill Sharp, who left the Keepmoat Stadium to join promoted Southampton during the January transfer window.
Diouf has been strongly linked with a move to Leeds United, who could now swoop for the 31-year-old after Rovers’ relegation.
“He scored six goals, got 12 assists and I think probably six of those were on Billy’s head in the six-yard box,” said Saunders. “Obviously Billy’s got a knack of finding space in the box.
“He’s a class player, not easy to manage off the pitch, but I only had him for five months and the clauses in his contract are for the Championship, so I think he’ll probably be going to another club, whether it’s Leeds or somewhere else.”
