It has been two years since Souleymane Doukara’s goal against Nottingham Forest. The former Leeds United striker has starred since leaving Elland Road – where is he now?
A corner to Leeds, the Whites leading Forest 1-0. With the game finely poised, a moment of magic was needed to secure all three points. Up stepped Doukara.
The set-piece was headed clear but only as far as Doukara, and the rest is history. He slammed home a rocket from 20 yards, on the volley, that arrowed into the top corner.

It was Doukara’s highlight in a topsy-turvy Leeds spell. But the Duke has since shone after leaving in the summer of 2017, becoming a household name in Turkish football.
Doukara joined SuperLig side Osmanlispor, and his five goals in 19 games earned him a move to Antalyaspor six months later. It is at Antalyaspor, where the ex-Catania ace has thrived.
In his 29 appearances, he has scored 12 goals and created eight more. Finally finding his home, Doukara has turned glimpses of quality into consistency.
The SuperLig is incredibly tight this season, with eight-placed Antalyaspor sitting just four points behind second-placed Galatasaray. Here is hoping the Duke can push his side into European football.
