Leeds fans have reacted on Twitter in frustration after defender Pontus Jansson picked up his 13th yellow card of the season in their 1-0 Championship win against Sheffield Wednesday.
Jansson, 25, has starred for Garry Monk’s side this season but has developed a reputation for ill discipline.
Now, the Sweden international is just two yellow cards away from a three-match ban, after sliding on striker Fernando Forestieri during the first half of Leeds’ 1-0 win at Elland Road.
With the Yorkshire giants looking to maintain a promotion challenge at the top end of the Championship, keeping Jansson in the starting eleven is paramount to their chances.
However, Jansson’s latest booking has worried Leeds fans on Twitter, with fans criticising their on-loan defender for succumbing to another rush of blood on Saturday afternoon.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Jansson loves a yellow

Jansson has been in wonderful form for the former Champions League side since agreeing a season-long loan move in the summer, making 27 league and cup appearances for the Whites.
Scoring three goals against Aston Villa, Blackburn and Norwich, Jansson has also been instrumental in keeping 11 clean sheets this term.
In other Leeds news, Jansson has revealed this is what he has disliked about his time in England.
