Diouf seeking Big Sam reunion

The Senegalese striker is due to return to Ewood Park in the summer

after spending the second half of the season on loan with SPL

champions Rangers. But Steve Kean, who replaced Allardyce as Rovers

boss following Venky’s takeover at Ewood Park, has warned the

30-year-old he will have limited opportunities at the club next

term. Diouf, who has a year left on his contract at Blackburn,

admits he would love a reunion with Allardyce, having also played

under the ex-Newcastle boss at Bolton. Preparing for his holiday in

Africa, Diouf told skysports.com: “I have finished my loan so I am

expecting to return to England with Blackburn. “I am 30 years old,

I want to play week in, week out these days. “Working with Sam?

That would be a fantastic thing to do. Sam is a fantastic manager

and very good man. I would be delighted to work under him again.”
