Controversial ex-Senegalese international El Hadji Diouf yesterday reignited his long running feud with former Liverpool teammate Steven Gerrard by declaring the England icon was a failure for his country.

Diouf, who spent an unsuccessful spell at Liverpool which prompted Gerrard to criticise him in his autobiography 10 years ago and sparked the war of words, told the BBC Gerrard was a very good player but for his club not his country.

"I have no problem with him. He is a strong character and I am a strong character," the 36-year-old said. "'Stevie G was a very good player. People like him in Liverpool, but he never did anything for his country. I am Mr El Hadji Diouf, Mr Senegal, but he is Mr Liverpool and Senegal is bigger than Liverpool."
