Championship: Leeds United forward Souleymane Doukara given eight match ban for biting

 Football News 24/7

Leeds United forward Souleymane Doukara will serve an eight-match suspension with immediate effect.

He will serve the ban after he was found to have committed an act of violent conduct following an incident which occurred in the 54th minute of the game against Fulham on 23 February 2016. 

Fulham defender Fernando Amorebieta was the victim of the bite.

The FA confirmed "The breach of FA Rule E3, which the player denied at an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing on Wednesday [30 March 2016], was considered a non-standard case given the seriousness and both unusual and violent nature of the misconduct."

"Mr Doukara was also warned as to his future conduct and fined £5,000."
