Leeds United: Fans take to Twitter to call for a warm welcome when Pontus Jansson faces club

Leeds United: Fans take to Twitter to call for a warm welcome when Pontus Jansson faces club

Leeds will be taking on Brentford in the Championship and that means the Whites will be facing off against Pontus Jansson for the first time since the Swedish defender made his £5m switch to Griffin Park.

The game will be at Elland Road too, meaning that Jansson returns to play in front of the fans that once heralded him as one of their best performers. Ahead of the tie, Marcelo Bielsa has been talking about the player, claiming that he deserves to be received in the right way.

It’s hard to argue with Bielsa either. Jansson was a big character at Elland Road, and whilst he wasn’t perfect, he gave his all for the Yorkshire club and deserves to be given some recognition for that, even if he isn’t cheered on during Wednesday’s evening kick-off, he at least deserves not to hear any booing.
