Controversial Senegalese star El-Hadji Diouf has swapped the pitch for politics and held forth on the Libyan crisis - with equally catastrophic results.
The Blackburn striker, who is currently on-loan at Rangers, has lifted the lid on his friendship with Colonel Gadaffi, declaring:
"Gaddafi is a man who I have always admired. I am telling the truth. I know him, and I know his son Saif as well. They are my friends.
'I do not honestly know what is really happening in Libya at the moment, but it must be very hard for Gaddafi and his family.
'I cannot remain far away from what is happening in Libya. I do not know who is in the right and who is wrong, but it is a shame to see so many victims.
'By the will of Allah, victory will go to the side that is in the right.'
