Many Leeds United fans loved what Marcelo Bielsa was saying about Stuart Dallas in his pre-match press conference and appeared to be in total agreement on Twitter as they shared their own views on the versatile footballer.

Speaking ahead of the Whites’ away match at Millwall on Saturday, the Argentine was asked about his star man following his recent inclusion in the Northern Ireland international squad for their matches against the Netherlands and Czech Republic in the upcoming break.
Bielsa spoke highly of Dallas and gave him some of the ultimate praise as he mentioned he felt that the 28-year-old was ‘a complete player’.
He said: “It’s not usual to find one player like him. He can play on both sides, he has the agility of a winger and is powerful as a defender. Technically he is a complete player.”
Indeed, Dallas has become a mainstay in the Argentine’s side this season as he has made eight appearances in the Championship so far (Transfermarkt) and was recently rewarded with a new long-term contract to stay at Elland Road for the foreseeable future.
Many fans appear to have been in agreement with Bielsa on Twitter as they did not hesitate to laud the Northern Ireland international’s ability as well and sung his praises from the rooftops, with many dishing out some rather huge remarks in the process.
Here are just some of those comments…

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