Souleymane Doukara has been banned by the FA for eight matches after being found guilty of biting an opponent – and honestly, Leeds fans do not seem that bothered.

The striker will not return for Leeds until the final game of the Championship season after he was caught sinking his teeth into Fernando Amorebieta during the 1-1 draw with Fulham on February 23rd.

The news hit Twitter early on Thursday afternoon and Leeds supporters, as well as football fans, took to the social media site to react and many saw Doukara’s ban as an opportunity for a good joke rather than concern at a player not being available for a month-and-a-half.

Doukara’s ban has reminded a few users of a little-known case involving Luis Suraez when he was still plying his trade at Liverpool.

Suarez has made an unfortunate reputation for himself as a player and was given a ten match ban while still at Anfield after his teeth clashed with Chelsea’s Branislav Ivanovic.

The Barcelona forward has been punished on three separate occasions in his career for biting an opponent and Doukara’s link to the Uruguayan was not lost on these Twitter users.

In the latest Leeds news, Steve Evan has admitted he may have made a blunder with the Whites’ prized asset.
