Fulham defender Fernando Amorebieta was the victim of the bite and was booked for his reaction.The FA said Doukara was warned about his future conduct and fined US$7,200.Leeds, who have nine games left this season, said the club “is disappointed with the outcome and the length of the ban”.Germany’s euro bonusFRANKFURT, Germany (AP):Each German player will be 300,000 euros (US$339,720) richer if the team wins the European Championship.The German Football Federation says the agreement on bonus payments has been reached with senior players. The payments begin with reaching the quarterfinals of the 24-team tournament in France and are the same as four years ago.A place in the last eight will be worth €50,000 ($56,620), a semi-final appearance €100,000 ($113,240) and a fourth European title €300,000 ($339,720). A runners-up finish will be worth half that much.
