The banter is strong within the Leeds United group at the moment.

Pontus Jansson has joked on Twitter that he didn't know Mateusz Klich was playing in Leeds United's 2-1 win over QPR on Saturday.

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:

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.
