Leeds United fans serenaded Stuart Dallas after Leicester draw
Stuart Dallas was subject to loud chants from the Leeds United faithful at full time after the 1-1 draw against Leicester on Sunday.
The 30-year-old started the game at right-back as Luke Ayling and Jamie Shackleton were both injured.
He put in an incredible shift all afternoon and his performance was reciprocated by the Elland Road faithful.
Yorkshire Evening Post journalist Graham Symth, via his personal Twitter handle, wrote, ” ‘One Stuart Dallas’ rings out around Elland Road as he walks off.”
Dallas has been Leeds’ unsung hero for far too long so it’s heartening to see him get the credit he deserves.
He’s a player who follows the manager’s orders to the T and is willing to sacrifice his personal gains in order for the team.
Given the number of positions he’s played in over the last three years, it’s hard to pinpoint where he’s the best at.
Right-back, left-back, central midfield and even on the wings, Dallas has thrived everywhere Marcelo Bielsa has deployed him.
The Argentine is lucky to have someone like Dallas in his side and the Northern Ireland international has already become a hero at the club.
He’s certainly going to go down as one of the most revered Leeds players of his generation and hopefully there is more to come from him.
Once everyone returns to full fitness, there’s a good chance that he slots back into central midfield and plays in front of Kalvin Phillips.
