Pontus Jansson withdraws from Sweden squad with injury

Pontus Jansson withdraws from Sweden squad with injury

Leeds United will spend the international break sweating over the latest injury concern they have within their squad.

The Whites were beaten 4-1 away from home last weekend when they visited West Bromwich Albion on Saturday night.

And, to make matters worse, there will now be some concerns over Pontus Jansson after the Swedish Football Association confirmed that he would be withdrawing from the squad through injury.


The centre-back injured his foot in the defeat to the Baggies in the second half but managed to play the rest of the game for Marcelo Bielsa’s side.

There is no indication as of yet on how severe the injury is, although those at the club will be hoping it is not too serious.

The Verdict:

The news that Jansson has picked up an injury will leave Bielsa and Leeds feeling a little concerned and will be hoping that it is not too serious.

The Whites are already without key players Luke Ayling, Gaetano Berardi and Tom Pearce in the defence, so the Swede’s latest setback could come as a damaging blow.

Leeds will want to put the defeat to West Brom quickly behind them, which would not have been helped by the international break when they meet Bristol City at Elland Road in a fortnight and will want Jansson to be involved in the clash.
