‘Our best player’ – Leeds man heaps praise on ‘brilliant’ team-mate

Leeds United’s veteran right-back Luke Ayling has heaped praise on his team-mate Stuart Dallas for his outstanding performances in the ongoing campaign.

The Whites are currently involved in a Championship promotion battle where they are placed second in the league table with 65 points after 35 matches.

Leeds are five points ahead of third-placed Fulham and just four-behind leaders West Brom with 11 matches to go.

In the ongoing campaign, Dallas has proven to be a trusted soldier of Whites manager Marcelo Bielsa, who has used him in different positions and even then, the player has put in a number of star performances for his current club.

While talking to the BBC radio, Ayling heaped praise on his Leeds teammate for being a top-performer this season.

“Stu, he is brilliant you know. He’s played in four or five positions this season and he has probably been our best player when he has played in those positions,” Ayling said about Dallas.

“I’m glad he’s found a home at left-back, and not at right-back. He’s brilliant. He runs all day, he gets up, he gets back, he’s in the form of his life. Absolutely different class.”

Dallas has been with Leeds since the summer of 2015 when he moved from league rivals Brentford.

Since then, the 28-year-old has represented the Whites in 182 matches in all competitions, where he has scored 17 goals and provided 13 assists as well.

In the ongoing campaign, the Northern Ireland international has represented Leeds in 36 matches in all competitions, where he has scored three times and provided a solitary assist.

Leeds are back in competitive action on Saturday against Yorkshire rivals Hull City and are on the back of three consecutive victories.
