Drinking Fun

El-Hadji Diouf likes to party

Sunderland forward paints the town red before Chelsea game

Prior to joining Liverpool in 2002, Senegalese forward El-Hadji Diouf told The Guardian:

“If I go out, party and still score goals on the pitch, no one will be able to write bad things about me.”

According to The Sun, the Sunderland party animal completely lived up to his mantra prior to getting spanked at Stamford Bridge at the weekend. Except for the part about scoring goals:

Sunderland star El-Hadji Diouf drank champagne in a trendy bar just hours before his team were thumped 5-0 by Chelsea.Less than 48 hours later he came on as a substitute as his side were drubbed by London giants Chelsea at their Stamford Bridge ground.

The Senegalese forward was with fellow Black Cats stars Pascal Chimbonda, 29, and Djibril Cisse, 27, at Newcastle’s Living Room bar.

They were there to celebrate the birthday of striker Obafemi Martins, who plays for arch-rivals Newcastle United.

Can you imagine what the argument will be like when Roy Keane confronts Diouf about this picture? When two of the scariest men in football face off, the effect will be something akin to Armageddon in the north east. But with a lot more spitting.
