Leeds land Diouf on permanent deal
Diouf stated recently , "Neil believes in me and gives me confidence. What happened is in the past. I just need to play my football and help the young lads we have got and help the team win games."
The 31 year old says he is relishing the challenge at Leeds and he is enjoying the fight of trying to win promotion to the Premier League than at a club fighting relegation. "In my life I only love one thing in football, the challenge. I had it at other clubs, Liverpool, Rangers, and leagues and now Leeds.
"To play for Leeds is a big challenge. We have 25,000-30,000 fans for home games and who doesn`t want to play for a big club like this with all the history?
"I prefer to play for Leeds than go to a Premier League club and have to play not to go down. It`s more exciting here and to help them achieve something special.
"This season we will try to get promotion to the top and make the fans happy. That`s what everyone wants, the manager, the players, the fans. And I want to let my football do the talking for me," added Diouf.
