Jansson delivers one word verdict on Leeds announcement slammed by fans
Leeds United defender Pontus Jansson has said that he is in a state of “shock” after the club announced their new club crest on Wednesday.
The Whites unveiled the new design via their official Twitter account, revealing a logo which symbolises the ‘Leeds Salute’, with the right arm placed horizontally over the chest, as well as removing the abbreviation of LUFC to include the club’s full title in a shield shaped motif.
6 months of research
10,000 people consulted
Ready for the next 100 years

However fans were not so positive about the reveal, which is said to have had six months of research behind it and 10,000 people consulted on the final decision, with the Leeds faithful slamming the move, with fans dubbing it “atrocious” and calling it “the worst thing I’ve ever seen”.
Now the club’s stars have got in on the act, with Swedish international Jansson delivering his one word verdict on his personal Twitter account which suggests he is siding with the supporters.
He replied to a fan page for his former club Malmo FF, who had posted a picture of the new logo, with the word “Chocktillståndet” which translates to shock condition, or state of shock.

The Whites will use their new logo from the beginning of the 2018/19 season, replacing the current rose and ball shield design which has been in place since 1999.
