Pontus Jansson reflects on an “emotional year” when he missed the Leeds United promotion

Pontus Jansson recalled the emotional year he moved from Leeds United to Brentford.

Elland Road’s career in the central half ended after white players Marcelo Bielsa lost in the playoff semi-final to County Derby.

Struggling with injury, he left the team and did not return to the team for the second match, watching from the bench when Leeds threw the lead in one goal from the first match with a 4: 2 defeat. Home soil.

At the beginning of the calendar year, Leeds missed a career opportunity, outpacing five points in third place.

Despite his departure, Jansson does not look back at his time at the club with bad feelings and, obviously, still maintains an emotional connection with his old teammates.

“Another emotional year of my career,” wrote the Swedish international on Instagram with a collection of photographs for 2019, starting with him and Calvin Phillips.

“The beginning of 2019 was so good and it was so close to a dream that we all never discovered with our feelings, but thanks for the fantastic year we spent last year in Leeds, I and everyone around me will never forget that.

“Although I’m still in the same league as you, I miss you all, especially the players and staff!”

This season, he races for the race, moving to Brentford in the summer for 5.5 million pounds.

Bees go in fourth place in 2020, losing 11 points to Leeds. Both sides have the best defense results in the division with 20 goals out of 25 games, where Ben White took Jansson’s place with Liam Cooper in United.

“Although it was a sad end, I am now the happiest person here in Brentford,” he added.

“We are on a journey that can go very far, and that made me a very good player and person in those months!

“We must never stop dreaming, and I think 2020 will be incredible!”
