Leeds United-owned Blackburn Rovers striker Marcus Antonsson has told The Lancashire Telegraph that he is not 100% happy with his performance.

Antonsson joined Blackburn in League One from Championship club Leeds on a season-long loan in the summer transfer window.

The 26-year-old striker failed to make an impact at Elland Road during the 2016-17 campaign, but the Swede has been a success at Blackburn already this season.

As reported by The Lancashire Telegraph, Antonsson scored three goals in five starts last season.

The Swede, though, has said that he is not 100% happy with his performance, and has said that he can be even better.

“I feel that I’m on the right way and starting to feel more comfortable,” Antonsson told The Lancashire Telegraph. “I’m still not 100 per cent happy with my performance, I feel that I can be even better.

“I feel that I’m improving all of the time, especially coming in to good areas in the box and I’m sure there will be more goals.”

Antonsson is a good striker, and his comments show that he is determined to improve himself and wants to do even better.

Such an attitude is very laudable, and perhaps the striker could return to Elland Road next summer with more confidence and could play a role for Leeds during the 2018-19 campaign.

The striker joined Leeds from Kalmar in the summer of 2016 for a transfer fee reported by The Yorkshire Evening Post to be worth £2 million.
