Mame Biram Diouf: Striker wanted to leave Manchester in a bid to further his car

Diouf, 24, managed only nine appearances for the Red Devils and despite a successful loan spell at Blackburn, could not break into United's first-team plans.

The Senegalese forward eventually secured a move to the Bundesliga with Hannover signing him for an undisclosed fee and ending two and a half years of sitting on the sidelines.

Since the move, Diouf has proved to be a great success, managing to play on a more regular basis and netting 15 times in 24 matches.

"Manchester United is a great club and I have enjoyed being a player of the club," Diouf told Bild.

"But when at such a big club like United you need someone that fully believes in your skills. It's useless just to be one more good player.

"It is a fact I wanted to move on. I did not want to have another loan spell at another club."

f Klopp is available and willing to go there, they have to sign him up. Far better manager than Rodgers. The reason Liverpool fail in so many big games is the inflexible nature of their manager and his inability to find strikers who fit into his inflexible style of play. A feature of nearly every game that the team comes up short is the way the opposition midfield appears to overpower them. It's too easy.

est player award should not go to a player who's second best at all the importent categories (i.e goals, assists etc) just because his team is at the top. If you are not first you are last; if you're second you are the first loser ( looking at you Hazard). David De Gea for POTY.
