Diouf questioned over 'racist language'

20 September 2009 07:12
Diouf was seemingly involved in an altercation with a ball-boy during the first half of the Toffees' 3-0 victory.

The Senegalese international is believed to have complained that the ball was not thrown back into play quickly enough.

Diouf then suffered abuse from home fans, and again when he went to take two corners in the area of the original incident.

After the match police interviewed Diouf at the stadium before the Blackburn team left.

A spokesman for Merseyside Police said: "We are looking into an allegation that a 28-year-old man used racist language at the Everton match today."
