Leeds fans heap praise on Jansson ahead of Swansea clash

After Pontus Jansson attended Marcelo Bielsa’s pre-Swansea press conference, Leeds fans are full of praise for the big man on his birthday.

Last season was absolutely miserable at Elland Road, and the turnaround since Bielsa’s arrival at the club is symbolised perfectly by Jansson’s transformation.

After an impressive debut season in Yorkshire, for which he was on loan from Torino, the towering Swedish international had a poor second campaign with the club.

In and out of the team with injuries, he and many others players failed to reach their previous standards under Paul Heckingbottom.

Since Bielsa’s arrival though, the now 28 year-old has been an absolute brick wall for the Whites, playing 24 Championship games, scoring twice and earning five man of the match ratings, per Whoscored.

Bielsa’s side welcome Graham Potter’s Swansea to Elland Road on Wednesday evening, and fans are full of praise for the big man at the back ahead of a hugely important clash.
