Leeds United star Stuart Dallas admits he’ll play anywhere if it means game time

The Northern Ireland international has been converted into a full-back under Marcelo Bielsa.

Leeds United utility star Stuart Dallas has been discussing his role in the Northern Ireland national team. 

Dallas is expected to play at right-back for his country in a friendly against Luxembourg tonight and again when his nation face Germany in a crucial Euro 2020 qualifier. 

The Leeds United star has revealed to the BBC he does not mind where he plays as long as he’s on the pitch. 

“I don’t mind where I play. As long as I’m playing, I don’t mind. It’s good that I’m able to play a number of positions, although sometimes being chopped and changed can work against you.

“We have obviously lost a few players through injury which is disappointing, but that’s a chance for a few of the other lads to come in, take the jersey and show what they are about.”

Dallas has been a regular fixture at full-back for Leeds United, especially under the management of Marcelo Bielsa.

Bielsa is known for his ability to convert player positions and in Dallas, it appears he has found a very capable full-back option. 

Whilst it previously looked as though Dallas was being used simply as an emergency option in the role, it now seems as though right-back is where Dallas may be playing the bulk of his football at Leeds this season. 

Undoubtedly, he would rather be playing in his preferred attacking role for his country. However, it seems his country is short at full-back and Dallas has proven at Elland Road he can play that role with aplomb. 

Hopefully, he can help his nation pick up a scalp against Germany during the international break.
