Stuart Dallas experienced a horrific injury against Manchester City last week, and Arsenal sent him a wonderful note before Leeds United’s encounter.
After undergoing surgery to repair a broken leg, the 31-year-old full-back might be out for up to six months.
Dallas failed to appear in a Premier League game for the first time since Leeds was promoted to the top division two seasons ago on Sunday against Arsenal.
An emotional note from Arsenal was included in the match programme dedicated to the Northern Ireland star.
“Get well soon Stuart,” the Gunners tweeted as Dallas was facing a lengthy layoff.”
Everyone at Arsenal wishes Stuart a speedy recovery from what is a terrible injury, and we hope to see him back in action next season,” he continued.
Meanwhile, when Leeds’ 3,000 fans arrived at the Emirates, they discovered a “Dallas 15” shirt on their seat.
As a tribute to the Northern Irishman, Leeds left the tops in the away end with a photo of him on the front with the slogan “there’s only one Stuart Dallas.”
Players from Jesse Marsch’s team also wore the shirts during their pre-game warm-up sessions.
Despite the fact that Dallas’ surgery was a success, Leeds manager Jesse Marsch stated that the much-loved player is anticipated to make a full recovery from his injuries.
According to the American, “His procedure was successful. It was a five-and-a-half-hour surgery, but they believe the outcome was excellent.”
They expect him to take a long time to recuperate, but they believe he will.”Fans, family, and friends have sent him over 400, 500 messages.”
We all know he’s adored, and this has shown it even more. I’ve heard he’s been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support.
