'Ridiculous' - In-demand Leeds first teamer makes brutal admission
Leeds United star Pontus Jansson has admitted that the club’s form has been “ridiculous” over the last few months.
The Whites have won just two matches since Boxing Day and have nosedived down the Championship standings after at one stage looking like a contender for a spot in the play-offs.
Jansson, 27, has found himself an in-demand player this season, despite not playing anywhere near the level he had achieved last term under Garry Monk’s leadership.
And now the Sweden international has admitted that this is the toughest time he’s ever had in his career as Leeds prepare to take on relegation-threatened Sunderland at Elland Road on Saturday.
“We have two wins in four months, That’s ridiculous,” he said, as quoted by Yorkshire Evening Post reporter Phil Hay on his personal Twitter account, adding that Jansson made it clear he is experienced the worst hardship he’s had in his career.

Football Insider verdict
Leeds’ form has been abysmal this year and Paul Heckingbottom is starting to run out of ideas. Every week he appears to be changing his team, his tactics and his formation but it is not doing anything. The issue has to be down to the quality of the players because Victor Orta has filled the team with players who are nowhere near the quality of the likes of Chris Wood, Charlie Taylor or Kyle Bartley, who all left last year. Andrea Radrizzani has to sort it out in the summer because if Orta does the same thing again, Leeds could find themselves in a relegation battle next term.
