Pontus Jansson reveals what made him proud about Leeds in draw v Fulham
By Danny Wright
Pontus Jansson has revealed that he felt a lot of pride because of the teamwork shown in Leeds’ goalless draw with Fulham on Tuesday night despite his side failing to pick up all three points.
The 26-year-old centre-back only returned to action on Saturday after missing the first two matches of the season through suspension and Thomas Christiansen’s men are yet to concede since the big Swede came back into the side.
However Leeds have also failed to score in their past two matches, both of which ending 0-0.
After Tuesday’s stalemate, Jansson is in the belief that the hard work and comradery shown by his team-mates will help the Whites achieve their long-term targets.
“Proud to see how this team fight for each other. Doesn’t matter who, everyone gives 100% and that will take us far. Thanks for tonight,” he said on his personal Twitter account after the match.

Jansson was signed by Leeds on loan from Torino last year, but since last season ended the Elland Road cult hero has made his stay permanent.
In Garry Monk’s side last term, the 13-times Sweden international scored three goals in 36 appearances across all competitions as the Whites almost secured a spot in the Championship play-off places.
There’s no doubt now that Jansson, as well as his new manager and team-mates, will be wanting to better that achievement and get slightly closer to returning to the Premier League.
