Brentford captain Jansson will be sorry if Leeds relegated

Brentford captain Pontus Jansson will be sorry if Leeds United are relegated tomorrow.

The Elland Road cult hero was booted out by Marcelo Bielsa in the summer of 2019 and ended up signing for the Bees for £5.5million.

Ahead of Sunday's clash, Jansson told The Sun: "Last year, when they had a fantastic season in the Premier League, of course I was happy for them.

“But at the same time I was in the Championship injured, feeling sorry for myself, and I wanted to be there with them playing, experiencing the Premier League.

“Now we are both here. I remember I looked at the fixture programme when it came out and I saw Leeds on the last day.

"I could see some nightmares around it. On the last day, we have to win.

“We want to win so if that costs them a spot in the Premier League, of course it's going to be a sad day — but Brentford is my team now."
