United striker to serve eight-match suspension...
United striker Souleymane Doukara will serve an eight-match suspension with immediate effect after he was found to have committed an act of violent conduct, the FA has confirmed.
Doukara was charged following an incident which occurred during the second half of the game at home to Fulham on Tuesday February 23.
The breach of FA Rule E3, which the player denied at an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing on Wednesday, was considered a non-standard case given the seriousness and both unusual and violent nature of the misconduct.
The club is unable to comment on this matter in any further detail until the full written judgement is released.
Suffice to say, however, the club is disappointed with the outcome and the length of the ban given to Souleymane Doukara.
