That could not have been more evident this weekend, when the striker scored a goal which we'd be surprised if he didn't rank it as the best of his career so far.
Anything Wayne Rooney can do... Mame Biram Diouf can do better.
The Senegalese striker scored a bicycle kick which was surely better than his former teammate's goal against Manchester City a couple of seasons back.
The goal wasn't enough to win the game, in fact his side went down 5-4 to Schalke.
For Diouf, it was his 12th goal in 20 games this season, he is certainly blossoming with regular football. It's a shame we never got to see him show his worth at United in the Premier League.
Watch his stunner below...
