Stuart Dallas has addressed continuous mistakes by BT Sports commentators during Leeds United coverage this season.

It happened once again during the 2-1 win against Newcastle, with commentators claiming that the Northern Ireland international is born in Leeds.

Dallas admitted that they could be doing it on purpose, with it correctly causing “uproar” among the Elland Road faithful.

Speaking to LUTV ahead of the clash with Leicester, Dallas claimed that commentators could be trying to wind up Whites fans.

“I think the commentators are doing it just to wind Leeds fans up and I think it’s working,” he said.

“There seems to be a lot of uproar. I’m proud to live in Leeds, I’m proud to represent Leeds, but I’m also a proud Northern Irish Ulsterman as well.”

Is it that hard to do two minutes of research?

Dallas is clearly a Northern Ireland international with one of the strongest accents you could hear, so where this Leeds-born claim came from, we’ll never know.

Leeds fans aren’t one to let these errors go unnoticed either, so clearly, the commentator will have seen that he has made a mistake throughout the season.

It’s Sky Sports sharing live coverage of the Leicester game tomorrow, so thankfully we won’t have to put up with yet more mistakes on Super Sunday.

Dallas plays a massive role for club and country, so we would have thought that it’d be quite obvious with research that he wasn’t Leeds born – let’s hope this changes for the upcoming Everton clash.
