Eto'o and Drogba are the best African Players Ever but Okocha is the Most Talented says El Hadji Diouf

Former Senegalese National team player, El Hadji Diouf has come out to clear the air concerning his most recent comment about being the most Talented African Player.

The former Liverpool Striker comment did not go down well with one of Africa's greats, Samuel Eto'o who has hit back at the Senegalese, saying he was the best African player and there wasn't any debate about it. Eto'o stated emphatically that:

"None of them [Diouf and Drogba] can come and say that they were at my level or better. And it's not the fact that I say it, it's a fact, it's something that is there. I wanted to be number one and I have been throughout my career." Eto'o said As quoted by

Meanwhile El Hadji Diouf feels he must have been Misunderstood and has come out to set things right. Diouf believes the two best African players of the last decade were Didier Drogba and Samuel Eto'o while pinpointing Nigeria's Jay-Jay Okocha as the most Talented African Player he (Diouf) has seen since his Birth.

"When I said that I am the most talented I did not say that I was the best. I spoke French, the most talented doesn't mean the best," Diouf said in an interview with RSI via Press-Sport.

"The two best African players for the last decades are Samuel Eto'o and Didier Drogba but on the other hand the most talented one cannot say that it is El Hadji Diouf. It is impossible.

"The most talented African footballer since I was born is Jay-Jay Okocha. He's the most talented player I've ever seen, but he didn't win as many trophies as the others, he didn't win a Ballon d'or".

Both Didier Drogba and Samuel Eto'o could be said to have had a more successful career than Jay-Jay Okocha in terms of Trophy Accumulation, but when it comes to Individual style of play, there is no doubt that Jay-Jay Okocha is the Most Talented of them all.
