The peace of the brave was signed between Aliou Cissé and El Hadji Diouf. The latter, who has just joined the Lions staff, puts on the ambassadorial costume of all the national teams. Dioufy was appointed to this prestigious position by President Macky Sall by decision of Augustine Senghor, President of the Senegalese Football Federation (Fsf). What about his role? « Aliou Cissé wanted me to play the same role as the late Jules François Bocandé at the time, » says El Hadji Diouf in the columns of L’Observateur.
Bocandé was like a liaison between the players and the staff. But, Dioufy intends to play more than the role of ambassador. « There are players to whom I can speak individually because technically I know what football is all about. I can help them on and off the field, « he said. Former international El Hadji Diouf accompanied the Senegalese delegation to Eswatini where the Lions face, for the second day of qualifying for the Can-2021 scheduled in Cameroon, the local team.
