Leeds United fans absolutely love their commanding Swedish centre-back. The majority of them would love to see Jansson as their captain and it looks like he can’t do any wrong in the eyes of The Whites at the moment.

Pontus Jansson is one of, if not the best centre-back in the Championship and it takes a lot to beat the Swede on the ground or in the air. The fans love him and feel a lot more secure when he’s out on the pitch as opposed to having to deputise others in his absence. Marcelo Bielsa understands that he’s one of the best players at the club and it seems he’s a real leader in the dressing room, with his outgoing character and charisma clear to see.
Even a couple of weeks back when he swore on live TV and accused the referee of robbery the fans failed to criticise him and stood by him when he received a hugely controversial one-match ban instead of the fine that everyone expected. If The Whites are promoted this season his form will be crucial to that, however, with the club sitting 2nd in the table there is still a lot of work to do as they aim to return to the Premier League.

The Whites will be keen to see Jansson keep his incredible form up and will hope that he can help fire them to promotion this season.
