Loads of Leeds fans have been reacting to Monday’s big news, as Pontus Jansson has now been charged by the FA for his post-Brentford comments.
Leeds’ recent 1-1 draw with Brentford was packed with controversy, as match packed full of incidents ended with the points shared.
Neal Maupay gave the visitors the lead from a contentious penalty in the second half, and the referee completely lost control of the match as time went on.
A scuffle on the sideline ended with Brentford substitute Sergi Canos dipping his head in towards Ezgjan Alioski, and the Bees certainly employed their fair share of time-wasting tactics as well.

Jansson didn’t hold back after the game, and has now been charged with misconduct by the FA.
“It feels s**t,” Jansson said in a post-game interview.
“I don’t care. This was a robbery from the referee so it feels bad. Do you think I should be happy? No chance.”
While fans loved his candour, the FA certainly didn’t, and fans are now fuming that Jansson has been charged while Canos was not.

Football Authorities force players to give TV interviews straight after a game when the adrenaline is pumping, then fine then for having pumping adrenaline on TV.

What a complete farce this has been from The FA

Either the club should tell players to refuse to do post match interviews or tell them to answer every question with “no comment”#lufc

Abusive yes. Insulting or improper, no. As for bringing the game into disrepute, the referee did that all on his own and the FA is taking it to the next level with this kind of frivolous charge of a player who had every right to be incensed.
