Ivory Coast’s Cheick Doukoure a doubt for Nations Cup

Cheick Doukoure in action for Levante against Real Madrid in La Liga on Sunday

Ivory Coast and Levante midfielder Cheick Doukoure’s participation in June’s Africa Cup of Nations is in doubt after injury ruled him out of the rest of the Spanish season.

Doukoure damaged the cruciate ligament in his left knee when challenging Real Madrid’s Casemiro on Sunday.

The La Liga club says he will be out for three months.

“Doukoure flew to try to clear the ball and landed with his left leg completely unbalanced,” said Levante.

“Thanks for all the support. Don’t worry I’ll never give up,” Doukoure added on Twitter.
