Arsenal captain Aubameyang admits being big fan of Liverpool rebel Diouf

Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang admits growing up a big fan of former Liverpool striker El Hadji Diouf.

The Gabon striker revealed it was fellow African forward and ex-Liverpool and Bolton ace Diouf.

He told Senegalese paper Stades: “I got to know the Senegalese national team thanks to El Hadji Diouf, who was playing in Lens at the time and who made us dream.

“I loved El Hadji Diouf so much, that in 2002, I coloured my hair with white powder, my friends did the same.

“After each Lions match at the 2002 World Cup, we danced, sang my friends and I."
