Leeds fans take to Twitter to stand by Pontus Jansson in Bielsa debate

Leeds fans take to Twitter to stand by Pontus Jansson in Bielsa debate - Aston Villa

Well, what an absolute rollercoaster that was. The Whites and the Villains shared the spoils in spectacular fashion yesterday. If it hadn’t been for Leeds’ lack of sportsmanship then it would have petered out into an eventless 0-0 draw, but it didn’t and one key incident that has come up is the rift between Pontus Jansson and Marcelo Bielsa.

The Leeds fans have had it ridiculously tough over the last couple of weeks. Never have the Elland Road faithful been left so distraught after an Easter Weekend. Losses to Wigan and Brentford derailed their chances of winning automatic promotion and now they have been left facing the playoffs as Norwich and Sheffield United claimed the prize, and yesterday’s game with Villa was testing the water for the playoffs.

In the clash with Villa, after scoring a highly controversial goal Marcelo Bielsa instructed his side to concede to the visitors and let them walk through to tap in, and it was a decision that did not sit well with Jansson. The Swedish defender kicked off and was visibly disgusted before trying to stop Albert Adomah from scoring, defying his manager’s instruction even if he couldn’t keep the ball out of the net.

You can read the Whites’ backing of Jansson here:

The Whites are all defiantly standing with Jansson in this debate and would rather stand with their Swede that they shouldn’t have allowed Villa to the walk the ball in for the equaliser.
