Pontus Jansson sends Twitter message to Leeds United

Pontus Jansson has sent a message to Leeds United as the Whites celebrated their 100-year anniversary, wishing the Yorkshire side “all the best” after leaving the club in the summer to join Brentford

Jansson, 28, joined Leeds in the summer of 2016 on a season-long loan from Serie A side Torino, before completing a permanent move later in that season. He spent three years in total at Elland Road, clocking up 120 outings.

His passionate, heart-on-the-sleeve performances made him a Leeds fan favourite. However, in the summer, he was surprisingly sold to the anger of Leeds fans – with Financial Fairplay believed to be the reason for his exit.

The Sweden international has since become captain at Griffin Park, but he put side the anger over his exit in the summer to applaud and congratulate Leeds on reaching 100 years as a club – after forming way back in 1919.

Jansson has since clocked up 11 appearances for Brentford this season, starting and finishing every single league game for The Bees. Brentford have won just three games, keeping just three clean sheets.

Many Leeds fans instantly reacted to Jansson’s Tweet, who was sold for £5.5million (Mirror) by the Whites in the summer. The majority of supporters reacted by reminiscing, urging Jansson to return to Elland Road.
