TWO former Sunderland stars were questioned by police after a nightclub brawl which left a man in hospital.

Diouf was arrested at the scene on suspicion of violent disorder.

Five other men were also arrested and all have been bailed until May 23, pending further police inquiries.

Diouf and Ferdinand were team mates at Sunderland in 2008-09.

Diouf, 31, from Senegal, is now with Doncaster Rovers.

“Another man has assisted the investigation, which is ongoing.”
