Leeds United defender Pontus Jansson led the pre-match chants with Malmo supporters ahead of Thursday’s Europa League clash with Chelsea.
Malmo lost 3-0 to Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, meaning that they exited the competition courtesy of a 5-1 aggregate defeat to Maurizio Sarri’s side.
The Leeds fans were not too bothered about the result, but they were certainly interested in what happened ahead of the match in London.

Indeed, the 28-year-old travelled to down London to watch the second leg and was seen leading the pre-match chants alongside fellow Malmo supporters.
The defender began his professional career with Malmo, making more than 120 appearances during his time with the Swedish outfit.

It was certainly a sight to behold and many of the Leeds fans revealed their love for the 28-year-old, whilst others joked that he now might receive a ban for his conduct.
