Phil Hay has dropped a positive update on Stuart Dallas after the Leeds United star underwent surgery.
Leeds United, who have seen a whole host of players pick up injuries throughout what has been a very poor season, will now have to finish the campaign without the ever-reliable and usual ever-present Stuart Dallas after the Northern Ireland international underwent surgery earlier this week.
Will Leeds be relegated?
The versatile Leeds star was forced to go under the knife after he broke his femur bone during the match against Manchester City last weekend and now faces a prolonged period of time, although according to Jesse Marsch, the operation was a success.
Hay, who was speaking on The Phil Hay Show prior to Marsch’s pre-match press conference, claimed that Dallas would still be able to football again once he recovers.
(32:35) “It’s by no stretch impossible to recover from it I think it’ll be patience and time, as much as anything. From what I can gather the operation went to plan and went as it was supposed to on Monday, so it’s just the long road.”
TIF Thoughts on Dallas…
Dallas will be an enormous miss for Leeds and Marsch as the 31-year old has started every league game this season, the only outfielder to do so, and has managed to start at least 34 games in each of the last three campaigns making him an almost ever-present in the side.
His ability to play in several different positions allows Leeds the ability to change formations in-game with relative ease, such is Dallas’ ability to perform in different roles, so Marsch now has to find a way of picking a system that still works and operates without someone who’s been in every single starting lineup in the league this term.
