The Senegal striker told the Bolton News: “I do not know what I am doing next season.
“I need to talk with the gaffer, with the chairman and my manager as well. When I saw on TV that Sam had left I was very sad.
“I will never forget him. He did a lot of things for me and that is why I have played better here than at Liverpool. Sam gave me confidence and respect.
“But, whatever I do next season, whether I stay or go, I will never forget Bolton.”
