Soccer bad boy El Hadji Diouf was beaten up in a drunken fracas in a nightspot’s toilets, it was reported yesterday.
The Leeds Utd striker was said to have abused other drinkers at beach bar Five in Almadies in his Senegal homeland.
Local newspapers claim two men followed him to the toilets and laid into him for ten minutes before bar staff summoned his minders in the early hours of Sunday.
A source had said: “He was with his wife but was completely drunk and was shouting abuse at everyone.
“A man called Thierry and a friend beat him up in the toilets for at least ten minutes. They gave him a going-over.”
Harouna Deme, boss of Le Populaire newspaper, which broke the story, said: “He has a reputation for getting involved in fights.
“I can remember at least four other instances of him fighting.”
Bar owner Latir Diop told The Sun there was a ruck that “did not last three seconds” and the former Rangers, Bolton, Liverpool and Blackburn star was not hurt.
Diouf has been accused of spitting at players.
In December 2005 he said he was “too famous” for a rehab order after 12-month drink-driving ban.
