Sunderland ace Diouf: I'm as good as Drogba, Eto'o

Sunderland attacker El Hadji Diouf says he's as good as Chelsea star Didier Drogba and Barcelona ace Samuel Eto'o.

"Do you think that Sunderland would have given me a four-year contract if I could not play anymore?" Diouf asked in L'Observateur. "Not at all.

"Today when we speak about Eto'o and Drogba, we also speak about El-Hadji Diouf. I made history in Africa and in the world.

"As long as I will play well for my club I will carry on representing Senegal in the national team. For the moment I'm focused on The Premier League, I try to do my best and to represent Senegal the best I can in England, as I always did."

Diouf also slaughtered Bordeaux star Souleymane Diarra.

"Souleymane Diawara will never do in his life what I have achieved. I'm the only Senegalese who won the [African] Ballon d'Or and who is internationally known.

"People don't even know him. If he goes to Saudi Arabia people will ask: 'Souleymane Diawara? Is it a ketchup brand or something?'

"I'm part of the 100 best players of the century. I'm a leader, I say it and I say it again. Senegalese people can't be fooled, they know who made them dream.

"They are also aware of who did s***."
