Having scored in Leeds United’s 2-0 win over Burton Albion on Saturday, Souleymane Doukara has opened up about what Garry Monk recently instructed him to do, report HITC.

Still having failed to start a single Championship game so far this term, Whites fans had been wondering whether the Frenchman would be released in January but that’s far from being the case in comments from the player himself.

Speaking to BBC Radio Leeds following the weekend win, Doukara claimed: “He [Garry Monk] talked to me, saying I can do something for the team so get back fit soon and you will have your chance to make the difference and you can play a big part for us. That’s it.”

Appearing as an impact sub in four of seven matchday appearances for Leeds United in the Championship so far this term, Doukara’s stoppage time strike to make it 2-0 made sure against the Brewers at Elland Road on Saturday.

A striker who can also play out wide of course, Doukara has now managed eight goals in 50 Championship appearances for the West Yorkshire side and the former Catania man will now have designs on achieving his first league start.

With the likes of Hadi Sacko, Pablo Hernandez and Kemar Roofe ahead of him in the pecking order right now, Douakara would’ve done his cause no harm at all with his strike.
