(Video) Pontus Jansson looking more like the beast he was last season with this tackle during Leeds v Barnsley

Since moving to the club Pontus Jansson’s tackles have been cheered like 30-yard screamers, with the Swede wooing Leeds fans over with his no-nonsense style of defending right from his first game on English shores.

Initially signed on loan from Serie A club Torino, the Swede was a regular in the lineup under Garry Monk last season but has found it hard to cement his position under Thomas Christiansen this season.

Slowly making a comeback into the lineup, Pontus was again impressive during the 2-0 victory over Barnsley on the weekend, with one particular tackle that managed to impress Leeds fans the most.

Already on a yellow Jansson showed unbelievable bravery and desire to swoop the ball from under the feet of Barnsley attacker Brad Potts just as he was making a move towards the Leeds goal.
