Leeds enforcer Pontus Jansson has said that the Leeds players are to blame for throwing away another season in the Championship.
Talking on Instagram, Jansson has apologised to Leeds fans and said that “at the end it’s about us 11 that are on the pitch every week.”
Jansson also seemingly committed himself to Leeds by saying to fans that it’s all about next year, and signed off with a positive message, thanking fans for their support and saying – “see you next year.”
Football Insider verdict:
What else are you going to say as a player? It was the manager’s fault? We’d suggest that wouldn’t go down to well at the club. However, fans will still appreciate the sentiment from a player whose social media posts haven’t always gone so well for the player. He was dropped from the team after admitting that his form wasn’t very good on social media, which led to a blackout on messages for a while. This one’s so safe though it could have been vetted by manager Paul Heckingbottom himself, and he might even consider framing this and handing it to Andrea Radrizzani as proof that the club should continue with him for next season. Will Jansson really be at Leeds after the summer? We imagine this will completely depend on his performance at this summer’s World Cup finals, where he’s due to play with Sweden. A standout display for his country could lead to offers that Leeds won’t be able to refuse.
