Leeds fans absolutely love Pontus Jansson’s latest comments, after the big Swede reaffirmed his desire to stay and fight for the club.
Leeds fans were annoyed recently when Jansson seemed to hint at an exit from the club, but it seems the latest reports on his comments are not reliable.
The towering defender, who took some considerable stick for his performances this season, has defended himself on his official Instagram page, claiming his comments were wrongly translated and taken out of context.
“When people use Google translate to paint a picture of me, that’s just ridiculous,” the 27 year-old said.
“Would never stand and talk bad about my club, you changed my life.”
Jansson was brilliant in his first season at Elland Road, but the departure of Kyle Bartley and an injury to Luke Ayling severely affected his form.
Despite taking plenty of criticism for his performances on the pitch, his passion certainly can’t be questioned, and fans are impressed by his courage to speak up and defend himself.
If anything, Jansson’s comments on needing to see ambition from the club actually echo the thoughts of many fans, so it’s no surprise they’re backing him on this one.

Think people are too easy to fall out with people at this club, he wants exactly what we want. That is all there is to it. If nothing happens this year he will leave and I wouldn’t blame him at all

Pontus speaks on behalf of all of us, in that he wants to see us back where we belong and, to do that, you need proper investment, on quality players.

100% correct in all he’s said, the club should match his ambitions… they’re our ambitions as fans too ??

Well done @PJansson5
