Leeds United defender Pontus Jansson has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to his side’s draw with Brentford.

Marcelo Bielsa’s side played out a 1-1 draw with Brentford at Elland Road in the Championship on Saturday afternoon.

After a goalless first half, Neal Maupay put the visiting team in the lead from the penalty spot on 62 minutes.


Leeds restored parity through Sweden international defender Jansson in the 88th minute.

The 27-year-old central defender was superb for the Whites and had sone of his best games of the season.

After the match, though, the former Malmo star - who initially joined the West Yorkshire outfit on loan from Italian side Torino in the summer of 2016 before making the move permanent in the summer of 2017 for a transfer fee reported by The Yorkshire Evening Post to be worth £3.5 million - swore on Sky Sports during the post-match interview, as reported by The Sun.
