Banned Leeds United ace Doukara comments on comeback, manager uncertainty

Leeds striker Souleymane Doukara says he expects to play again this season.

Leeds United striker Souleymane Doukara has told supporters he expects to play again this season.

Doukara is currently serving an eight game ban after he was found to have bitten Fulham defender Fernando Amorebieta during a 1-1 draw between the two teams in February.

Speaking during a live periscope broadcast on Tuesday evening, Doukara fielded a range of questions from supporters.

He was asked if he expected to feature again this season when his ban expires, to which he replied: "Yes, I will be back."

The first fixture Doukara will be eligible for is the final game of the season, against Preston North End at Elland Road.

His involvement is dependent on the decision of head coach Steve Evans, but certainly he has not given up on the season just yet.

Doukara was also asked by a supporter if he knows who will be the Leeds head coach next season, and admitted he, and teammate Jordan Botaka who joined him for the interview, are none the wiser.

He said: "We don't know lads, who the manager is going to be."

Club owner Massimo Cellino is yet to give his backing to current boss Steve Evans, who has the side unbeaten in their last four games and has the side in 12th position in the table.
