In life, honesty is often in short supply when it comes to sport and deceit is often seen as acceptable to some degree.

It was what he perceived as deceit that Pontus Jansson responded to, and responded with some colour added to the black and white of his word choices.

He’d just scored this goal (below) to bring Leeds United level at the death and ensure a hard-fought point against a dangerous Brentford side.

But it wasn’t his reaction immediately afterwards that is almost certainly going to land Pontus Jansson in hot water, it was what he said on Sky Sports, and live (below), that will have the FA on the blower.

When asked to sum up his feelings after he’d equalised, Jansson said: “Nothing. Feels s**t to be fair.” Asked by the Sky Sports interviewer to mind his language, Jansson was straight back on the straight-talking offensive.

He instantly responded with: “No, no, no I don’t care. This is a robbery from the referee so it feels bad.” Asked if he was not happy with the referee’s performance, Jansson replied: “You think I should be, huh? No chance!”

Jansson was commenting after the match official had awarded Brentford a ‘soft’ penalty earlier in the second-half, one that now 10-goal Neal Maupay converted.

It is a comment that is likely to land the popular Swede in hot water with the authorities, but it’s definitely lit a fire under the Leeds United fans over on Twitter. Here’s a little of what they had to say:
