Pontus Jansson has a habit of chatting to the Swedish media about Leeds when he’s on international duty and this time is no different. It’s not irregular players do that obviously, but Jansson has a habit of stirring it up a little bit and again, this is no different.

Jansson didn’t commit either, saying that he will think about his future after the World Cup. He has done this before as well, his future at Leeds United has never been certain. He is such an emotional player and things aren’t going well like much of this season his character has certainly been questioned by the Leeds United fans and some pundits. Without Kyle Bartley alongside him the defence has crumbled this season, the return of Bartley is probably key to Jansson’s performances next season.
I don’t think Jansson will leave despite his words that suggest he isn’t sure. He signed a new five-year-deal during the season and unfortunately that puts us in the driving seat. He isn’t someone who is coming to the end of a deal or even near it. Jansson needs to knuckle down after the World Cup and working on finding the form we know he is capable of because when he is performing at his highest he is the best defender in the Football League.
Jansson is right about what has happened at the club. He said on and off the pitch wasn’t good enough and nobody can disagree with that review of what happened. He said he was sorry for what happened to Thomas Christiansen but he, like the majority of the players had stopped playing for him. Jansson’s words should ring in the ears of Andrea Radrizzani and Victor Orta who tried to replace some of the best players in this squad with cheap imports who failed. These are the players we need to impress in the window, that’s how football is now. Jansson needs to focus on the football now, he’s said his piece.
