Doncaster 'challenge' draws Diouf

Senegalese striker El-Hadji Diouf, released by Blackburn Rovers this summer, explains that he's moved to struggling Championship side Doncaster Rovers for the "challenge".

The two-time African Footballer of the Year, described as a "class player" by Doncaster manager Dean Saunders, had been on trial with Sam Allardyce's West Ham earlier this month but the Hammers boss decided not to offer the Senegalese a short-term deal.

The 30-year-old has been a controversial figure since his arrival in British football in 2002, having been charged with spitting offences on three separate occasions.
