Supporters of Leeds United have flocked to a post which was shared on Twitter by Swedish centre-back Pontus Jansson.

For the defender’s current club Brentford, Jansson has not made their matchday squad during their previous two fixtures in the Championship (per Transfermarkt).

Not only did he wish a Merry Christmas to Brentford fans, but also to fans of Malmo and Leeds United.

This had lots of Whites supporters flocking to it to air their reactions.
