Whilst singing the praises of Manchester United, Diouf recognises he had to leave for the sake of his career.
“Manchester United is a great club and I have enjoyed being a player of the club,” Diouf said. “But when at such a big club like United you need someone that fully believes in your skills. It’s useless just to be one more good player. It is a fact I wanted to move on. I did not want to have another loan spell at another club.”
