Leeds haven’t been able to produce some of the most positive news this week.
The Whites face Millwall this weekend and it’s a match that could see the ever-improving Stuart Dallas move position. Marcelo Bielsa suggested that he could slide into central midfield with Luke Ayling returning at right-back.
As he detailed that, the 64-year-old labelled Dallas’ qualities.

It was a glowing indication of what the Argentine thinks about the 6-foot utility man who also earned plaudits in response from fans.
They were quick to rave over how good he’s been as one said he’s turned into a Premier League quality player under Bielsa.
Dallas was branded a machine, as well as being described as Leeds’ player of the season so far.
The Northern Irishman ended last term playing at left-back but has since made the right side of the defence his own by featuring in all ten matches in the Championship so far.
Here’s the best of the reaction to Bielsa’s comments.
Cookstown cafu ?

One of the first names on the team sheet now and a great fella too. He’s earned his stripes at LUFC. Great player

Always was a solid player but his transformation under Mr Bielsa is nothing short of outstanding. Top top player and cracking lad too!

It’s been an absolute pleasure to see Dallas grow into the job, rewarding Bielsa’s faith. A proper ‘team player’.
