Diop: I joined Portsmouth for European action

Papa Bouba Diop says he quit Fulham for Portsmouth because he feels he has a better chance of playing European football at Fratton Park.

"Portsmouth have the squad and management to push for honours and are good enough to be playing European football next season," Diop told the Daily Star on Sunday.

"I didn't get that feeling at Fulham and when the new manager Lawrie Sanchez came in, it was best that I moved on.

"I wasn't part of his plans."
