The banter is strong within the Leeds United group at the moment.
The Poland international played the full 90 minutes as second-placed Leeds beat Steve McClaren's side to open up a five-point cushion in the automatic promotion spots.
Afterwards, Jansson claimed on Twitter that Pablo Hernandez was the best player that he had ever played with, without using the Spaniard's name.
Klich then thanked his Leeds team-mate for the kind words, joking that he was referring to him, before the Swede shut down the 28-year-old in a brutal way which had club owner Andrea Radrizzani laughing.
See the hilarious exchange below:
My man, best player i ever played with and it’s a true honour to have you in my team! On to the next one now! See you Saturday! pic.twitter.com/idHsPxYFN0— Pontus Jansson (@PJansson5) December 8, 2018
Thanks Pontus— Mateusz Klich (@Cli5hy) December 8, 2018
Ah did you play today?— Pontus Jansson (@PJansson5) December 8, 2018
Ye mate, tried from 20 and 30 yards... on to the next one— Mateusz Klich (@Cli5hy) December 8, 2018

It's a prime example of the team spirit that Marcelo Bielsa has created this season and it's really great to see the owner interacting with players in this way if you're a Leeds fan.
The Whites endured a difficult three-year spell during Massimo Cellino's ownership of the club, a period that was rife in instability given the Italian's penchant for sacking managers.
But what a difference 18 months can make. Now United are favourites for Premier League promotion, after Radrizzani hired a truly world-class head coach in the summer and one who Leeds fans will want to see in West Yorkshire for a long, long time.
