Leeds United fans have laughed at Pontus Jansson, after he got skinned in Brentford’s pre-season friendly against Bournemouth at the weekend.
Jansson left Leeds to join Brentford earlier this summer, in what was a shock transfer.
The Swedish centre-back’s relationship with Leeds boss Marcelo Bielsa seemingly broke down, which gave Brentford a chance to swoop.
Jansson is now starting to settle with his new side, but he didn’t make the best impression on Saturday.
Brentford were beaten 3-1 by Bournemouth in pre-season, and Jordon Ibe completely left him for dead for one of the goals.
Ibe cut inside after Jansson tried a slide tackle in the box, leaving the former Leeds defender stranded, before lashing home from close range.
And it is far to say that Leeds fans were feeling little sympathy for their former player.
@NickBruzon great defending by pontus there. Even better keeping lol— Julian Fortuna (@jfortuna42) July 28, 2019
I still love the bloke but he used to try that slide every game and never worked— Jack Bielsa (@YorkshireJack94) July 28, 2019

Thought He was quality— Alfie Thomson (@AlfieThomson6) July 28, 2019
Average player, made to look better in a poor defence!— Paul Medforth (@MedforthPaul) July 28, 2019
Imagine the fume if Cooper got done like our fan base would be in meltdown— Christopher (@CM4892) July 28, 2019
Leeds have still not replaced Jansson, with Ben White the only defensive addition that they have made so far this summer.
