Leeds fans destroy 25-year-old after performance against Birmingham
By Amir Mir
Souleymane Doukara started the game for Leeds in their 3-1 win against Birmingham on Friday night – and fans on Twitter destroyed the 25-year-old for his performance.
Chris Wood opened the scoring in the Championship clash at St Andrew’s when Luke Ayling’s brilliant ball over the top found the in-form striker who dinked the ball over the on-rushing keeper.
It was a poor display from the away team thereafter and they were duly punished just after the hour mark when Craig Gardner leveled for the hosts.
The promotion chasers struck back when Wood hit his 22nd goal of the season, three minutes after Gardner’s strike with substitute Alfonso Pedraza making sure of the points nine minutes from time.
However, the Elland Road faithful were not pleased with Doukara’s display with one fan asking how they are in fourth place with players like him in the side.

During the match, many were calling for him to be substituted with one fan branding him lazy, another overweight and hopeless.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
