Leeds United attacker Souleymane Doukara says he wanted to play against Real Madrid growing up.
Leeds United attacker Souleymane Doukara has revealed to BBC Radio Leeds that he has always wanted to play against Real Madrid.
The 25-year-old, who can operate as a striker or as a winger, has revealed that he wanted to play against Madrid while growing up.
When asked to name the English team he most wanted to play against while growing up, Doukara told BBC Radio Leeds: “Real Madrid.”
Of course, Madrid are a Spanish club and Doukara was asked to name an English side, but it seems that Los Blancos are the team that the Leads attacker wants to play against the most.
Will it happen? Maybe…
After all, not so long ago Leeds were flying high in England and playing in the Champions League… against Madrid.
The West Yorkshire outfit have not featured in the Premier League since 2004 and are now playing in the Championship.
The Whites are going strong in the Championship this season, though, and are in contention of a playoff spot.
It is hard to see Leeds returning to the Champions League anytime soon, but in the long term it could happen.
Garry Monk’s side will take on Premier League club Liverpool away from home at Anfield in the quarter-finals of the EFL Cup on Tuesday evening.
