It was a mixed afternoon for Leeds United old boys.

On the one hand, Mallik Wilks, who left the Whites to join Barnsley, enjoyed a winning debut after the Tykes beat Fulham at Oakwell.

But it wasn't such a good day for former Leeds centre-back Pontus Jansson.

Jansson, who was sold to Brentford last month, was on the losing side as the Bees lost 1-0 at home to Birmingham City.

 

It was a frustrating afternoon for Jansson - and he showed it in a very Jansson-like way.

The 28-year-old was filmed barging a Blues player into the stands at Griffin Park for no apparent reason, and here's how Leeds fans reacted to the footage:

Leeds fans weren't on his side here, but many more will still miss the former Malmo and Torino star.

It's petulant incidents like that which made him such a popular figure among fans of the West Yorkshire club. He's a heart-on-the-sleeve player and Brentford supporters will no doubt find themselves liking him.

A breakdown in relationship between Jansson and Marcelo Bielsa was the reason behind his sudden departure, according to The Mirror.

United kick off their Championship season with a trip to Bristol City tomorrow afternoon.
