Souleymane Doukara admits his Leeds frustration

Souleymane Doukara says that he is confident of more playing time for Leeds United now.

Leeds United attacker Souleymane Doukara has told The Yorkshire Evening Post that it has not been easy for him to sit on the substitutes’ bench for most of this season.

The 24-year-old, who can play as a striker or as a winger, has been on the books of Leeds since the summer of 2014.

The former Catania man has struggled for playing time so far this season, but he played a starring role against Wolverhampton Wanderers away from home on Thursday evening.

Doukara came on as a substitute on the half-hour mark and helped the Whites register a 3-2 comeback victory in the Championship game at Molineux.

Following the match, the former Vibonese player told The Yorkshire Evening Post: “Every player wants to play. To be on the bench was not easy for me.

“Now, I think I will have more game time. I am ready to help the team and to play every game but everybody has to work hard to take the shirt.”

Against Wolves, Doukara took one shot, had a pass accuracy of 77%, created three chances, put in one cross, won 67% of his tackles and 100% of his headers, and made two clearances.

The 2014 summer signing has created seven chances in seven Championship appearances for Leeds so far this season.
