Leeds United is facing a tough road ahead- especially senior members who are not delivering well. Team owner Andrea Radrizzani has said that certain players have let the team down and have been underperforming. All these shortcomings will result in certain players, even senior players, getting fired if things do not improve.
Since Boxing day, Leeds has only scored one win.
We at 777iGame think that Stuart Dallas should start worrying about what his team owner is saying, as he has shown a subpar experience as first-team regular. This season alone, Dallas has scored only two goals and two assists. We are talking about 27 matches here, so we understand Radrizzani’s frustration.
When owner Radrizzani was interviewed in talkSPORT at the Jim White Show, he was angry with those players who were given high-paying contracts just last year after he started owning the Team in May. He said that they have given their players everything they could so that the club members could just focus on football. That as a club, they have been more than supportive by giving them long-term contracts and even season camp in Spain. But despite that, they did not get anything in return – no wins, no scoring, no passion, no commitment.
Stuart Dallas was one of the players who signed a contract last year. He still has 2 more comfortable years in his contract left and has to be paid until 2020, unless he will be sold off this coming summer. Although Radrizzani did not specify the players, we at 777iGame think that Dallas is one of the many in that Radrizzani is eyeing. But it should also be said that this could also just be a way for team owner Radrizzani to get his players in shape, and in the mood to start winning matches again. It goes give off a vibe that Leeds has expectations and a level of performance that they want players like Dallas to meet.
It is also worth noting that Dallas has had problems getting match time with their ex-manager Thomas Christiansen, which could account for his performance this season. He has been getting more exposure as a regular starter with their new boss Paul Heckingbottom. Their manager has also had problems with his regular starters, as Samuel Saiz and Kemar Roofe was not playing on Saturday’s loss to Sheffield last Wednesday with a 2-1 defeat. So with all the past issues that they might have had with their former team manager, having a new manager at the helm will surely change the team’s performance.
But we at 777iGame believe that Stuart Dallas is still worth his contract. He is, after all, the man who scored the winning goal in the world cup qualifier for Northern Ireland last year. And with Heckingbottom as their new manager, the team may well be on their way to getting back to its feet, and Dallas may be the key to it all, now that he is playing in the field again.
Leeds United is currently at the bottom of the Championship form table in terms of results from the second half of this season.
