Pontus Jansson slams huge individual errors this season
By Dominic Toner
Leeds defender Pontus Jansson has admitted that he has picked up too many needless booking this season.
The 26-year-old has been a key figure for the Whites since his summer arrival and been an ever-present in the starting line-up.
He has formed a commanding partnership alongside teammate Kyle Bartley and they are both being tipped to play in the Premier League.
Jansson has thrived during his first full season in English football and dominated the physical side of the game.
However, the Sweden international has overstepped the mark on a number of occasions and has 14 yellow cards to his name.

That means he would serve a three-game suspension if he picked up another booking by the end of the season.
Jansson has admitted that there have been too many “stupid” yellow cards this campaign, as cited by the official Twitter account of Yorkshire Evening Post writer Phil Hay.

Jansson has made 35 appearances so far for the Yorkshire club and managed three goal in return.
The centre-back has adjusted very quickly to life in the Championship and was included in the EFL team of the year, with teammate Chris Wood also included.
He has played a major role in the club’s push for promotion, but they are now on the brink of missing out on the play-offs after a poor blip.
