Leeds United central defender Pontus Jansson is a very passionate footballer who wears his heart on his sleeve.

The Sweden international centre-back is not scared to get stuck into challenges, and the 28-year-old - who is hugely popular among the Elland Road faithful - also does not shy away from challenges.

 

The former Malmo FF star - who joined Leeds on a season-long loan deal from Torino in the summer of 2016 and made the move permanent in the summer of 2017 for a fee reported by The Yorkshire Evening Post to be worth £3.5 million - is not one to keep his calm when things boil over.
