Mills wowed by 'incredible' Dallas after best-on-pitch Leeds reveal
Stuart Dallas has been “incredible” for Leeds United but he cannot go on forever.
That is the view of ex-England and Whites right-back Danny Mills, speaking exclusively to Football Insider after Dallas made his 242nd Leeds appearance against Norwich City.
Moreover, the utility man revealed to the BBC he had lost a close friend in October and it had been mentally “challenging”.
Dallas ended Leeds’ 2-1 win at Norwich with the best pass accuracy of any player from both sides.
According to sofascore, he completed 24 of his 26 passes – a completion rate of 92 per cent.
The Northern Ireland international also won six of his eight duels and made three clearances at Carrow Road.

It was just Leeds’ second Premier League win of the season as Norwich remain winless and rooted to the bottom of the table.
The Whites are now three points clear of the relegation zone.
“Realistically, how much longer can Stuart Dallas keep doing what he’s doing? It’s incredible, pushing to the absolute limit constantly,” Mills told Football Insider correspondent Connor Whitley.
“It’s tough and it’s hard work. He’s 30 now.
“It’s an ageing squad. When Bielsa took over they weren’t in their prime so to keep that going it’s tough.
“That’s why they’ve been successful and that’s how they’ve been successful.”
Dallas signed a new contract with Leeds over the summer after his impressive maiden Premier League campaign.
He is now under contract at Elland Road until the summer of 2024.
