There are players who rule the world of football with sheer flamboyance and superior skills, and then there are those who leave behind a legacy long after they are gone just by being loyal to the club.
Leeds United’s Pontus Jansson sits proudly in the second category. Not only is the defender seen as an indispensable part of the club, but is also perceived as somebody who was born to play for it.
From former manager Garry Monk to current boss Thomas Christiansen, Jansson has always remained consistent as somebody the team can blindly rely upon.
Former Leeds MD David Haigh recently sang paeans to the 26-year old when he described him as, “Exactly the right man for Leeds, at exactly the right time.” Fans, too, could not agree more.
Jansson reaffirmed his live for the club during a Sky Sports shoot by doing the “Leeds salute” that fans would love to see every time he is shown in Leeds lineups before matches next season.
