Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher responds to Diouf ‘turkey’ jibe

Jamie Carragher has issued a response to controversial ‘turkey’ jibe from former Liverpool team-mate El-Hadji Diouf.

In an interview with French magazine ‘So Foot’, Diouf said “The person I would least want to spend Christmas with is Jamie Carragher.”

“I hate him. He was the biggest turkey I’ve seen on a pitch. I found him useless.” said the 34-year old who currently play his trade in Malaysia.

“It’s better than a Donkey & plenty have called me that before!!!!!!” , responded Carragher when quizzed by a fan on twitter.

Diouf is somewhat addicted to controversies and this time he aimed his attack at Liverpool legends Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher.

The Liverpool flop labelled Steven Gerrard as “an egotist” and Jamie Carragher as “useless and a turkey”.

The ex-Senegal international who wore the Red’s shirt during 2002 to 2004 is not a popular figure among the Kops fans for his terrible attitude and poor performances on the field.

Carragher has previously remarked on Diouf’s career with Liverpool saying that he is the worst player in the history of the club.

“He has one of the worst strike rates of any forward in Liverpool history.”

“He’s the only No 9 ever to go through a whole season without scoring. He was always the last one to get picked in training.”

Diouf has only score three goals in 55 appearances for the Anfield club and hardly scored more than 5 league goals a season during his entire career with a handful of English clubs, including those from the lower division.

The English fans may still remember Diouf for spitting at Celtic fans during a Uefa Cup quarter-final and taunting QPR’s Jamie Mackie as he lay on the pitch with a leg broken.

We are yet to see a response from Gerrard after Diouf told So Foot, “Steven Gerrard is a great club player but an egotist as well”

“He didn’t care about Liverpool winning – all that mattered for him was getting on the score sheet.”
