Senegal exclusion angers Diouf
Leeds winger El-Hadji Diouf has voiced his anger at the Senegalese Football Federation after being left out of their latest squad.
Diouf, 31, had a five-year ban from international football revoked last month and was expected to be a part of their squad to face Ivory Coast in the Africa Cup of Nations play-off on Saturday. The controversial winger was given banned from footballing activities in Senegal in July 2011 after accusing the Senegalese Football Federation (FSF) of corruption. He now believes that despite the decision being overturned, the FSF are "scared" of him and the reason for his omission is down to the confederation rather than Senegal coach Joseph Koto. "They're scared of me," Diouf told the BBC World Service. "They do so many bad things inside, they don't like someone with a big character inside to say what they want to do. "It's not like in Europe. In Europe everything is perfect. And here it's not. That's why we don't get results when we play big competitions. "(But) I'm not disappointed. I've played so many good games in my life. I don't want to be involved because I can't work with the federation. "After this game they're (FSF) going to go. They have to go and if they don't go I don't want to play for the national team."
