Jansson makes Leeds revelation: We have not been ambitious enough

By Amir Mir

Leeds ace Pontus Jansson has slammed the club’s mentality following their 2-0 win over Brighton in March.

At that time, Garry Monk’s side had just beaten a team that was sitting in the automatic places, with Leeds closing the gap on their rivals to eight points.

Centre-back Jansson feels after that match, they should have aimed for the top two rather than thinking about just finishing in the play-off places.

Since then, Brighton along with Newcastle, have secured promotion back to the Premier League, while Monk’s side are now in danger of losing a top six spot.

As posted by Yorkshire Evening Post reporter Phil Hay, Jansson made this revelation as he admitted that his team have not been ambitious enough.

The Yorkshire club suffered a demoralising 2-1 defeat away at Burton last Saturday which dented their chances of finishing in the play-off places.

Fulham thrashed rivals Huddersfield away from home which meant that the London club opened up a three-point gap on Leeds.

More worryingly for Monk, if it does go down to goal difference then his team are way behind on their rivals.

Leeds’ goal difference is currently plus 14, with sixth-placed Fulham are on plus 27 as they are the highest goalscorers in the division.

Jansson has been a key figure for the club this season, with the Sweden international building a strong partnership with Kyle Bartley at centre-back.

In other Leeds news, Garry Monk has sent a warning to the club about his contract talks in June and stated what will happen.
