Leeds United fans have taken to Twitter to mock Pontus Jansson following his latest performance for Brentford.

The Sweden international left the club earlier this summer in a surprise move to their Championship rivals for an undisclosed fee, although it has been hinted that a price of £5.5million had been paid.
However, there have been conflicting reports as to why Leeds sold him.
Jansson told Aftonbladet (via The Independent) he had been sold with the club concerned they would break Financial Fair Play regulations, whilst Marcelo Bielsa is thought to have fallen out with the 28-year-old and told him to find a new club (Football Insider).
But, things did not go as well as he would have liked on the pitch in Saturday afternoon’s clash with AFC Bournemouth.
A video emerged on the social media site showing their former centre-back being skinned by Jordan Ibe during their 3-1 defeat.
The winger cut inside after Jansson failed with a slide tackle in the box, leaving the defender for dead as he fired home.
And, fans of Leeds have found it the ideal opportunity to mock the defender and took to Twitter to share their remarks regarding his performance.
One supporter mentioned that Jansson was being found out for being an average defender, whilst others just wanted to ‘roast’ him.
Here are just some of their reactions…

I’m hearing that Pontus Jansson has been torn to shreds by Jordan Ibe? A man who has scored 3 goals in 3 years at Bournemouth
