El-Hadji Diouf insists his stay at Bolton has become a special part of his life.
The Senegal striker has been an integral part of Sam Allardyce's side this year and his form has helped Bolton push for Europe once again.
Diouf has also formed a close friendship with his fellow striker Nicolas Anelka and insists he is more than happy with his career path.
Diouf told Radio Manchester: "This is more than a football club. This is a family. Everyone is working hard. We want to surprise people.
"When I first said I was coming here, people laughed. Now they know why I came.
"Everyone here recognises my talent. I love people booing me, talking about me.
"The fans never boo a bad player. I excite the fans because I want to give my best."
Diouf also claims he has a good relationship with Allardyce and that there is a mutual respect between them.
"Sam brings the best out in me. I know if he thinks I am a bad boy, he will not talk to me.
"I am happy with the work I have to do for the team. I believe I am doing my job correctly.
"I am enjoying my life - I love playing football."
