Good news today, Sam Allardyce has revealed that he will not be signing El Hadji Diouf or Spit The Dog as he is known in some corners.
The West Ham manager, who came under heavy fire this week for considering signing a player who spat at West Ham supporters back in 2002 whilst a Liverpool player.
Allardyce said: “Everyone seems to be aware that we’ve had El Hadji Diouf training with us but I’ve decided today not to offer him a short-term contract. We’ve had a good look at him over the past few days but because he’s had no real football for some time his conditioning wasn’t good.
“With that in mind – and the possibility that some of our injured players will be hopefully have recovered in the not too distant future – we won’t be looking at a deal.
“Obviously I had to bear in mind the situation at the club with the fans. It was sensible to take everything into consideration and the most important thing is we are going pretty well at the moment and there shouldn’t be any distractions.”
Great news in my opinion, like we need another troubled player who would probably end up spitting at his own supporters if he got booed!
