Bob Carolgees and Spit the Dog are reunited again! Sunderland striker El-Hadji Diouf has joined Blackburn resuming ties with Rovers boss Sam Allardyce, who got the best out of him during their time together at Bolton.
Diouf, 28, has completed a £2 million move in a bid to revitalise his career under Big Sam, who brought him to Bolton from Liverpool five years ago. The Senegal international has sauntered through his spell at Sunderland since his £2.6 million transfer last summer, failing even to score in 16 games for the Stadium of Light club.
Diouf will ensure that Big Sam's side has a greater edge to its play thanks to his spiky persona.
Diouf gained notoriety by spitting at opposing fans during his Liverpool days. Big Sam didn't gain notoriety for looking like Bob Carolgees. He just does!
There were only two clubs that D10UFY really could've joined given his dog-like predilictions. Rovers was one, Wolves the other. No chance of forming a partnership with Stan Collymore though. That's a different kind of dog behaviour altogether. Walkies!
