''Absolute Legend'' - Twitter Reacts As Leeds United Star Filmed Leading Malmo Chants Ahead Of Clash With Chelsea

Pontus Jansson In Full Voice!
Pontus Jansson In Full Voice!

Chelsea fans could be forgiven for thinking the whole world is against them as very little has gone right of late and there was the bizarre sight of a Leeds United fans leading opposition chants prior to their Europa League match on Thursday night.

The Blues were taking on Malmo at Stamford Bridge and Leeds United's Pontus Jansson had made the trip down from Yorkshire to London to help leading the Malmo fans' chants.

You can see Pontus leading the way and in full voice with his fellow Swedes by watching the video of the chants at the end of this article.

Jansson has previous with Malmo as he played for them between 2009 and 2014, before joining Italian Serie A side Torino. The Swedish international, who has been capped 20 times by his country, has gone on to become something of a club legend at Leeds after making a loan move permanent in 2017.

Leeds have gone from strength-to-strength with Jansson at the heart of their defence, even if their promotion charge from the Championship has hit the buffers of late as they have slipped to third in the table, but it is clear that the 28-year-old still holds Malmo close to his heart.

Twitter users were full of praise for Jansson...

What a chap [@The_Tabasco_Kid]

God damn LEGEND! [@Fozmeister1]

What an absolute legend [@SBreakwell]

The overwhelming theme was that he is a 'legend', although some Leeds fans were worried he loved Malmo more than them...

think he loves malmo more than leeds and its making me cry a bit [@spendog1986]

The Swedish fans were in fine voice before the game at Stamford Bridge and you can see Jansson getting fully into the swing of things in the build-up to the second leg of their Europe League last-32 clash by clicking the 'play' icon in the video clip below.
