Leeds United manager Daniel Farke has provided an update on Stuart Dallas’ fitness, stating that a setback in training has required the player to return to individual recovery.
Dallas hasn’t booted a ball since breaking his femur bone in a match against Manchester City in April of last year.
Dallas has been working on his rehabilitation after undergoing surgery and has dismissed rumors that he is considering retirement from football.
Dallas was able to return to first-team training early this month, giving Farke a boost.
The 32-year-old was anticipated to return to first-team action soon.
However, in a shock to Dallas, Leeds’ management has confirmed the news of a setback, which will delay Dallas’ probable return.
“There was a minor setback in training, and as a result, he had to return to individual rehab work,” Farke explained at a press conference.
“But I think in the next one or two days he will also return back to team training.”
Dallas’ contract at Elland Road expires at the end of the season, and it remains to be seen whether the club decides to renew it.
