Pontus Jansson shares insight into life away from Leeds as he mixes with Brentford teammates



Pontus Jansson has taken to Instagram to post a picture of him with his new teammates at Brentford.

The Swede can be seen posing with his new teammates Sergi Canos and Ollie Watkins on his Instagram story (@pontusjansson.18).

On the post, he has captioned ‘Hermanos’ – meaning brothers in Spanish – along with a star, fire and upwards arrow emojis.

Jansson joined Thomas Frank’s Brentford from Leeds United for a fee of £4m up front, plus add-ons which are likely to rise to £5.5m, according to Sky Sports News journalist Lyall Thomas on Twitter.

The 28-year-old was a key figure at Leeds last year, and even featured in the Championship Team of the Season.

The club narrowly missed out promotion to the Championship after finishing third in the league, and then consequently got knocked out in the play-offs by Derby County.

It was reported on Monday by Football Insider that Jansson was allegedly asked to leave due to a “disruptive presence” and an “attitude problem”, however, Jansson’s latest quotes have disputed that, claiming he was pushed out of the club due to their struggles juggling Financial Fair Play.

Jansson said to Swedish news service Aftonbladet: “Leeds needed to sell to balance the books because of FFP and they saw that they could make some money out of me.”

The Verdict

It hasn’t taken long for Jansson to take to social media to share moments with his new teammates, though not too much should be read into it when you consider how social media is used by footballers nowadays.

He looks to be having a good time with his new teammates during pre-season, and it should be taken as that rather than a pop at his former employers.

It’s unsurprising to see him getting on well with his new colleagues considering how much of a character he is.
