Leeds United’s injury boost has already had a significant influence on the squad


Despite being “weeks” away, Leeds United’s injury boost has already had a significant influence on the squad.

Stuart Dallas returned to the Leeds United team last week for full training after a lengthy hiatus due to his leg injury in April 2022.

So much has happened since Stuart Dallas was stretchered off with a break in his femur at home to Manchester City back in April 2022, and he comes back into the squad with the side back in the Championship

It’s been a long road for his injury comeback, but it looks as though we are very close to seeing him back in a white shirt.

Daniel Farke spoke about the iconic Northern Irishman in his pre-match press conference today, where he had this lengthy comment on Dallas (via LeedsLive):

“Yes, first of all, I’m really delighted because it was a tough road for him during all this rehab work and I’m quite sure there was some bit darker moments also for him.

“It’s so tough when you’re not allowed to do what you love to do, to play football and it’s great to see him the first time back in team training, at least in big parts of the team training yesterday. Pretty delighted and happy for him and also the group, so you could feel at him literally each and every player was outside to give him a warm welcome with a little stick to his head, it’s more like a little tradition.

“Yes, big boost for the group because he’s a brilliant lad and not just on the pitch but also off the pitch also in the dressing room, quality player but also has lots of experience and good sense for the whole group, for the unity and he’s a quite important, very important player for me.

“I always like to talk with him and pretty experienced, also more or less like a Leeds legend because he’s done so much for this club and definitely good to have him back. So to be honest, it will last a while till he’s really available also for the game so he was out such a long time.

“Normally, you have to be back in training to get back to your peak fitness after an absence. If I’m being completely honest, I hope it won’t last that long, but it will undoubtedly take a few weeks before he’s totally available and included in my plans, which is an important step that makes me happy.
